Love Poems

A collection of posters exploring how we view sex and sexuality through a lens of pornography, featuring algorithmically-generated poetry and found porn images. The poetry was generated using a context-free Grammar, sourcing only words from a collection of 25 erotic BDSM themed stories found online. All words in the peom are sourced from the stories, and their frequency determined the probability of their appearance.

Once the poem was generated, I added punctuation, corrected verb-agreement, and added the image (the structure of the poem itself was created by the programme). You can try generating other poems here.

Below are some of the posters I made:
