Remain Calm... Remain Calm (Porto, 2024)

Remain Calm is a creative rewrite of the text "Remaining Calm" by Alvaro García de Zúñiga (1958-2014), conceived in response to an invitation to the event "A.G.Z. small explosions," which involved "intertwined operations of scribwriting." In dialogue with a specifically trained GPT-4, thousands of danger warnings were generated, inspired by A.G.Z.'s proposals, to which an equal number of sound descriptors (captions) were added. The work is presented in two versions: in one, a combination of a danger warning, a caption, and a sound from a specially created sound effects database is randomly generated; in the second, the combination of warning and caption is inserted into a PDF (saved in the user's Downloads folder), which is formatted to imitate the style of danger signs.

Commissioned for the meeting "A.G.Z. small explosions," organized by Manuel Portela (Center for Portuguese Literature at the University of Coimbra) in partnership with the Casa de Mateus Foundation, with the aim of testing "a set of reading and writing hypotheses according to collaborative and contrapuntal principles."



ARR_GPT ARR_GPT - António Ramos Rosa _ Perpetual Trembling Gesture (Porto, 2024)

The ARR_GPT aims to explore the poetry of António Ramos Rosa by using the poetic questions found in his work as a starting point for new creations. The GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 4) has been adjusted to reflect the poet's style, sensitivity, and characteristic themes, interpreting these poetic queries—now transformed into commands for the AI—to resonate with his distinctive voice. Among the thousands of interactions generated by ARR_GPT, one thousand questions and answers were selected, now featured in this web version, each edited and enhanced. Of these, five hundred were further adapted to form five distinct sets, each containing one hundred cards printed on sugarcane paper, thus enabling a tactile and visual poetic exploration. Even the logo of ARR_GPT was designed to engage with the nuances of GPT-4, reflecting its peculiarities.

Created in the context of the exploratory project FCT To See the Tree and the Forest. Reading the Poetry of António Ramos Rosa from a Distance, coordinated by Bruno Ministro, FLUP/ILCML.
