A Poem Seen by The Machine


The 1967 poem “All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace” by Richard Brautigan, expressed the feeling of enthusiasm about the oncoming digital revolution where we would be democratized through computing power. No longer would we suffer from scarcity or injustice. The Machine could take care of everything bringing our chaotic world to order.

As this utopia Never saw the light of day, and as computing power has grown exponentially since 1967 to where we can ask the Machine to visualize text, it only seems natural to ask how it sees the words of Richard Brautigan.
