Banana Poetry is a platform for experiments in creating a mechanism/organism for the generation of new poetry and linguistic creations. It is an interactive installation powered by an alternative energy source – fruit and vegetables. Ultimately, the work might be manifested in a mobile form incorporated in a backpack that could be plugged into an orchard. Serving as energy source, the natural could be converted into an electronic environment. This would be a new space for creativity in the digital realm. An integral part of the work is the program Scribbler, which browses the internet, reads and analyzes various texts, and then tries to imitate them. What it produces sounds like schizophrenic babble or trash poetry.
