Ghost in the Cog: A Poetic Score
A sound artist and a writer and performer challenge the concept of a straightforward algorithm by blurring the boundaries between input and output. The final website invites users to activate a poem as a score by reading and playing it with no clear set of rules, and get lost in sound and webspace.
Sound is the [REDACTED] of the World
A bone flute, a stone, a car horn, cicadas, and Nsibidi pictograms: Bola Chinelo created a visual and sonic animation, exploring »unwanted sounds«, »natural algorithms«, »noise«, and »emptiness«. The multilayered project takes up the idea that algorithms as subjects to glitches, misinterpretations, or uncertainties can make room for the unexpected.
This webpage composition explores how locality, environmental listening, engagement with a particular plant from Naarm (Melbourne), mapping the flow of data and information streams, and critical/creative coding are important categories in which resistance to colonial power might take shape.
ALTeks: NGLitcholalia. Sound as Search Engine
Artist and poet Sherese Francis has created six broadcasts that think about knowledge-making in the context of Black and Afro-diasporic poetics, languages, and sounds. Speaking in tongues, the roots of words and their constant migration, and dub music are only a few of the ideas she has been playing with in the series, where each show is a poetic essay.
Of Roots and Portals: With-nessing
Indigenous Khasi artist Fileona Dkhar created a work that explores different media of correspondence and communication: The acts of writing letters, exchanging cassette tapes, tapping into oral traditions and myths, incorporating sprinklings of algorithmic imagery or fractal image generation, and prompts become tools for world-building and connecting with pasts and futures.

Re-Imagining In-Conversation: A New Poetics
The artist invite you to a sonic space with mutable elements, allowing the user to create soundscapes to coexist within an almost endless aural possibility and multiplicity. The website itself rejects »a static position or a universal narrative«, acknowledging the multiplicity in relation to identities.
