Description (in English): 

Observing that Keats's poem “reads like a program written for human software,” Josh White
reinterprets “The Living Hand” in the voice of an artificially intelligent robotic computer system.
Notions of persistence and durability reappear here in the guise of digital emulation. The end result
is a commented code poem in pseudo-C++ that changes the original “so as to produce an alternative
that is different yet recognizably related to it.” [from an Introduction by Prof. Kari Kraus]
