Poetry and Potage evenings
July 12th, 2013 to July 19th, 2013

PROSECCO member Simon Colton and Advisory Board member Dan Ventura hosted a CC-themed poetry reading and cuisine night at the Galerie Oberkampf in Paris for the week of July 12th to 19th. Half the poems were provided by The Painting Fool software, while the other half were chosen by Russell Clarke, who also read the poems aloud and imbued them with an oral poetic sensibility. Guests were invited to partake in a variety of "crockpot" soups that were cooked by a human chef from recipes generated by a gastronomically-trained algorithm. For those skeptical of either soup or CC, the computer-generated cuisine was complemented with finger food prepared by chef Sophie Grilliat.
