I like these questions from Aliette. Is 'artificial life' primarily in
reference to the algorithmic or is the life of art essential to interesting
'artificial life'? Adding to the quote that 'the idea is a machine that
creates the art' (67) i'll throw in the william carlos williams quote,
probably earlier, that 'a poem is a machine made out of words'.

i have been making 'animisms' for some years now, which i think of as
kinetic poetry with soul.
