A Dialogue Between the Soul and the Body by Andrew Marvell

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

A delightful experiment in machine translation by Michelle Phillips.

A conversation between two computers. One read a verse aloud and the other transcribed it through voice recognition and vice versa. The process was repeated until Andrew Marvell’s poem “A Dialogue between the Soul and Body” had been completely re-written.

I am thinking we could dub the result a meta-metaphysical poem.
