My lost aunt is an algorithm — Mi tía es un algoritmo

By Jocelyn Ibarra

Artist's Note

In 2012, my aunt Sandra left the family by choice and moved into the United States.

She doesn't write back to many family members, but in 2018 she started replying to my emails.

I don't know how else to verify she's the one writing; our exchanges have become combinations of these lines.

Electronic poetry is the effervescence that results from inserting soil and glittery liquid into a mechanical device. The computer is not the poet; the role of the poet is distributed between poet and audience.
