NP Machine Algorithm

Negative Poetry Machine Algorithm is a custom made software that translates The King James Version of the Bible (org.pub.1611) into its negative using the database of the Oxford English Dictionary.

The software is designed to search for word antonyms for each given word in three levels. First level are direct antonyms of the word. If no antonym is found the program searches for word synonyms and for each of those their antonyms. Multiple negative translations are used randomly throughtout the text – leaving the possibility for always a different kind of negative Bible. The code was minimally optimized for better readability.


Programming: Miloš Grujić. Negative Poetry v1.0 was supported by Mangelos Foundation (Young Visual Artists Award Serbia), Museum of Science and Technology in Belgrade and Oxford English Dictionary.
