ReRites is a limited edition boxset of 12 poetry books (generated by a computer then edited by poet David Jhave Johnston) + 1 book of essays (about A.I and poetry). Between May 2017-18, Jhave produced one book of poetry per month, utilizing neural networks trained on a contemporary poetry corpus to generate source texts which were then edited into the ReRites poems. The boxset is a conceptual proof-of-concept about the impact of augmented creativity and human-machine symbiosis.
This boxset is accompanied by a book of essays written about the ReRites project. Essay authors include: Allison Parrish, Johanna Drucker, Kyle Booten, Stephanie Strickland, John Cayley, Lai-Tze Fan, Nick Montfort, Mairéad Byrne, and Chris Funkhouser.
