Sappho's Ghost is a 5 minute interactive Virtual Reality experience that uses a HTC Vive headset and Leap Motion hand tracker. There are two key spaces the audience finds themselves in: the box, and the slime riot. These two spaces present two different ways of engaging with algorithmically generated poetry. By putting queer text within reach in a visceral way, Sappho's Ghost aims to rethink discourses surrounding queer cultural production and strategies of meaning making in digital environments.
