Brought to you by the makers of the Cathode-Ray Tube Amusement Device.
The good people at The Dream and Nightmare Laboratory are about to follow one robot’s sleep-fever and embark on the slumber party of a lifetime.
A computer dares to dream—of death, hope, internet.
The poems explore beauty and forgetting in pixels and in bits.
The poems explore memory and consciousness as glitch.
The work as a whole hopes to queer the way we see the future and technology.
