The Found Now

The Found Now is a year-long found poem project for 2017.

The poems are based on black and white photos I took during 2016.

Each day this year, I’ll upload the corresponding day’s photo from 2016 to Ross Goodwin’s word.camera, which uses algorithms to generate text based on the content of the image. I’ll begin with the resulting text, then erase everything but the poem.

To see the poems superimposed on their source photos, visit the found now.
