The Pessoa Project

Generative poetry from the living text of The Book of Disquiet.

The Pessoa Project is the continuation of work I did at The Disquiet International Program in Lisbon, Portugal. The website takes the full text of The Book of Disquiet by Fernando Pessoa and randomly generates poems that can be saved into WordPress by visitors. The project was completed in under 10 hours before Christmas and is dedicated to a long-distance penpal whose relationship with the author is entirely digital.
