My infopoetry consists of a 33 rpm vinyl record’s cover, that metaphorically represents a session of me listening to music from the Spotify app in the auto-play mode, starting with a song chosen by me. The cover is a collage of individual song covers (or album covers, when the song has no specific artwork). The individual artworks are arranged on the cover and physically connected to the next ones by an aux cable (one of the most common cables for transporting audio information), which indicates the sequencing of the songs suggested by the algorithm. Each time I skipped a song, the cable undergoes a cut at the corresponding artwork, indicating the interruption of the path predetermined by the algorithm. The cable then metaphorically represents the listening stream. The back cover consists of a list showing titles and authors of the songs listened to (with their duration and total listened to), along the lines of normal album tracklists. Blank spaces on the front cover are used to provide the user with some more indication of the project.
