Sampsa Nuotio and Raisa Omaheimo: Google Poetics

Work / Miscellaneous

The excellent Google Poetics blog turns our online searches into small poems

This is simply tremendous. Sampsa Nuotio and Raisa Omaheimo have started a blog which showcases the poetry of Google’s predictive search facility, building its suggested searches into strange, moving little works of art. The often baffling juxtapositions of song lyrics, sayings and bizarre sentences come together to reflect some of our age-old preoccupations – love, sex, death, religion etc. Whatever else you’ve got on today, take a few minutes to visit this special little corner of the internet.
