IN THE CORRECT CONTEXT, NONSENSE IS FLIRTATIOUS OR AN OBSTACLE : Jón Örn Lođmfjörđ
literature

Jón Örn Loðmförð, born in Selfoss Iceland on Christmas Day 1983 and conceived in Keflavik around Easter the same year, is an Icelandic experimental poet who has lately concentrated on digital poetry with a good deal of success. He has created poetry machines, including the notorious Goggi, available in four languages, and the Daddi poetry machine, which Jón and his friends poetry band, Músifölsk, has demonstrated in performances such as at the 2006 Nýhil Festival and at the Arts Festival the same year.

He has published three books with Nýhil, Síðasta ljóðabók Sjóns (Sjon’s last poetry book), with Arngrímur Vídalín, a textual recycling of the texts of Icelandic author Sjón Usli: kennslubók(Mayhem: Textbook), with Kristín Svava Tómasdóttir, a feminist cut-up poetry book and Gengismunur, a collection of computer generated text manipulating both Icelandic modern poetry and economical jargon.


I.
Behind the image of every bank is a big trustworthy caption with a model looking confident. You only have to scribble a little bit on the advertisement to see how empty this image is. That’s probably why all good citizens are afraid of graffiti.

II.
Nonsense can be an efficient pesticide.

III.
The mouth is very wide, with curved outlines and the skin around it is roughly haired and bustling.

IV.
– Horned tower formed, supported by the sole, seamless cylinder with slightly lower diagonal. Oh will you please?
– Where did you get the money to buy these gardening tools?

V.
No one has managed to develop a machine that can accurately spot nonsense.
