Taroko Gorge is a generative poem inspired by the Taroko Gorge National Park in Taiwan. The words scroll endlessly, emanating the form of a minimalist nature poem. On the surface it is a bucolic description of a natural landscape, boundless in its variations and vertical length, yet bounded (like a gorge) by its short lines and the height of the screen. Montford subverts the anti-technological tendency in traditional nature poetry and poses a question regarding whether a human programmer can reform nature on a computer screen. Additionally, the poem emulates ephemerality characteristic of encounters with the natural world.
