Poetry from Google’s autocomplete search queries

Google Poetics, founded by Sampsa Nuotio and curated by Raisa Omaheimo, reframes Google’s autocomplete suggestions as poems. Many of these are wildly personal and vulnerable, reflecting the far-reaching anxieties people have — we are responsible for feeding the search engine these queries after all. Certainly takes the idea of crowdsourcing to a new level.
