Index I

Tom Haviv & Owen Roberts

Book Designed by Becca Lochie on the occasion of the Mathew Gallery residency.

Owen Roberts and Tom Haviv designed Geneword, an algorithm that affixes Greek & Latin prefixes to (an approximation of) all the nouns in the English language.

In Index I, the words from Geneword were presented from the ground up: from prefix, to new word, to phrases and whole passages. The passages are from the book of Genesis.

Text generator placed the "new words" randomly in a passages from the Book of Genesis, using the NLTK to identify common nouns, and runs a Markov chain algorithm to generate new hybrid texts.

The words were generated by a program written by Roberts and the chapbook was printed on a risograph provided by Matthew Gallery.
