This project explores the language of classic Russian novel from Alexander Pushkin till Victor Pelevin over XIX, XX and XXI centuries. Neural network was trained on 30 Russian novels and then started to imitate the stylistics of the Russian novels with theirs features, words and grammatical structures. Surprisingly the result was some kind of poetry: vers libre referring to avant- garde practices. The live sound- installation was presented at the opening of the Festival of Media Poetry in Saint-Petersburg.
