Picking Figs In The ˚̥̞̞̽̽ͯ Garden While My World Eats Itself says
picking figs in the ˚̥̞̞̽̽ͯ garden while my world eats Itself is a curatorial poetry collaboration with a large number of algorithms, bots, generators, and code snippets. Using a shifting set of parameters to define possible poem shapes in a letter-as-atomic-particle ruleset, these programs dissect and reassemble language according to a set of meanings intrinsic to their existence but opaque from a human viewpoint.

Selected output from the last year has been collected into a printed chapbook, with accompanying illustrations machine generated for (and from) each poem. Other iterative experiments are also present in the gallery space, including; visitor input as recurrent poem generation, printer as headwaters of a localized river, text as bell-carillon, and a series of new drawings.

Raw Paw Press will be releasing a limited edition chapbook of the same name to accompany this exhibition.


this nest was right there- principles, objects
It was egg-shaped, buckwheat, a distance, (it is thought on the outside)
Letters felt it, the intricacies of a step discovery.
One to pull myself composition,
It dawned other screens.

They certainly feel something here, have boarded Now, little islands of an ambiguous same.
"warm", "cold", their numerical value,
their inscriptions, meaning in only tiniest fragment,
the letters themselves as physicists
a blue dome
surprised by verses.

You and I have carried this into the open country.
the white cube of letters and a folded flame.
They divided the moment, the will of the matter.
The correct facing away from the sun.
a little dozing plane.


Katie Rose Pipkin was born in Austin, Texas in the fall of 1990. She makes drawings with her hands, the internet, and language- sometimes that of machines, and sometimes words of her own. Here is a series of symbols that looks like a field of flowers. ↾⌠❦ᵳ≀〴❧❀१✾឴〳ノ〳❊⎝.
