Full project name:
Of Origins: The Fibonacci Syllabic Generator ver. 2.01123581321
Of Origins is a generative language processing script written in python that munges genesis texts into visually appealing poems. The text is organized into data sets by syllables and each line of the poem pulls a word from the set by running the Fibonacci sequence up and down.
This project points to the structures of language and the idea of ‘language as such’ as a self guiding and generative process.
(2009) Python, various genesis texts (english translation): Western Samoan genesis narratives, King James Bible, Apache Native American text
