Hi I’m Oscar Schwartz. I live in Melbourne, Australia. For the last two years I’ve been trying to answer the question: can a computer write poetry? So we made a Turing Test for poetry. Basically, I think and write a lot about how digital technology is making us think carefully about what it means to be human. Another thing I’m interested in is how people tell their life story. I’ve helped people transform their life story into books. I also write some of my own poetry. I’ve also interviewed, reviewed and essayed. I work from Cubby House Studios, a collaborative work space that some friends and I set up at the beginning of 2014. If you want to look at more of my work and ideas click through to my portfolio. If you’re interested in any of my work and want to talk, contact me. I will reply.
