Abstract (in English): 

This paper addresses poetry that has begun to probe the scanbed and its sense-making apparatus, optical character recognition (OCR). It surveys a growing list of texts operationalizing the semiotic architecture of digitization to both scrutinize the kinds of ‘reading’ that process performs and to reflect on our contemporary moment of machine generated language and distant, distracted, or otherwise disengaged reading.
