Poetic Computation: Reader is an online-book about code as a form of poetry and aesthetic by Taeyoon Choi. Based on his lectures at the School for Poetic Computation, the book introduces the poetic aspects of computation and considers how engaging technology with this lens can lead to new political possibilities. In connecting modern computation to its historical antecedents, it problematises the fetishistic embrace of technology and presents a case for [radical/ongoing] intervention.
