  • The Xenotext Experiment: An Interview with Christian Bök: “I am hoping to encipher my text and then integrate it into the genome of the organism, doing so in such a way that, not only does the organism become an archive for storing my poem, but moreover the organism also becomes a machine for writing a poem. I am hoping to design a text that, when implanted, does not injure the organism, but that instead causes it to generate a protein–one that, according to my cipher, is itself another text. I foresee that, in the future, DNA might become yet another poetic medium.” – also much, from the horse’s mouth, on the creation of that marvellous book Eunoia.
