Wendit Tnce Inf
Wendit Tnce Inf is a book of asemic prose poems that I wrote, published in a beautiful hand-made letterpress-printed edition by Aleator Press. To generate the poems, I trained a suite of GANs (generative adversarial networks) on bitmap images of random words, and sampled from those GANs to generate new wordforms, pixel-by-pixel. A separate program I wrote then places these words on the page, one after another, line by line, mimicking the process of typesetting English prose. I originally developed the code I used to generate the book as a NaNoGenMo project in 2019.
