“The intention of this text is to explore creative possibilities of encryption, specifically creating a sound poem out of straightforward poetic text. The source texts are the poems from the book Roadrage. The resulting text was created through a combination of different substitution ciphers, primarily Atbash cipher. The other ciphers were used to create this text are Affine cipher and Caesarian shift. In a couple of instances Rot13 algorithm was used for editing purposes.”

“Volodymyr Bilyk is a poet from Ukraine who writes in English. He adheres to Ezra Pound’s “Make It New” aesthetic and considers Pink Dairies’ song Do It to be a quite adequate description of his artistic intentions.”
