POETASTR is a poem generator that uses an algorithm to source tweets in real time from the API - application programming interface - using parameters specific to poetic structures and hashtags. An award winner at the POV Hackathon 5 in New York, the winner of an ICI ARTV bursary in digital arts and finalist for the Interactive Award at the Sheffield Doc/Fest, POETASTR is part of NORIGINALS, a multiplatform project devoted to the future of creativity in the digital age.
