A Digital Poet in Residence

Saturday 4 March, 10:00 - Sunday 5 March, 22:00
The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Level 1 & 2 Foyers

Where digital poetry meets Twitter bots

As digital poet in residence at StAnza 2017, Christodoulos Makris, ("one of Ireland's leading contemporary explorers of experimental poetics" – RTÉ Poetry Programme) will use simple text editing tools to make poems out of internet browsing history, in real time. The resulting pieces are to be showcased as physical and subsequently digital installations, and will cumulatively provide an oblique record of the festival and its setting in time and place. In addition to material Christodoulos gets naturally drawn to during the festival period, he welcomes contributions and suggestions from the public. You can approach him directly at the festival about this or tweet him links to interesting reads @c_makris.
