About me, Sharon Clark: I graduated from Pratt Institute’s Writing Program in 2010 with a BFA in Poetry. I started studying artificial intelligence and cybernetics (human-machine interaction) when I read the essay “A Cyborg Manifesto” by Donna Harraway in 2008 for a media theory class . Learning about the simulation of human intelligence (AI) inspired a 2-year long obsession with perception, language, and the act of writing that resulted in my thesis project: an essay titled “Disciplined Adjuncts to the Moment of Sight” and a collection of poems, “The Least Most Happy Time”. What a silly name! Visit to read my verse.
