Abstract

This article introduces Inverso, a computer program that creates haiku by randomly combining pre-existing lines of poetry and presenting them in different fonts and layouts (again randomly selected from a range of possible fonts and layouts). Inverso's ability to write successful haiku raises several important issues regarding the role of randomness in creative works and problematizes the question of "authorship".
