Based on the limitations of language and errors in using online translators, I created a series of poems. I chose to work with English (native tongue) and Japanese for its linguistic and structural differences. (Note: this language choice becomes arbitrary and could have been a variant of other languages.)

One statement written in English would be translated to Japanese, back to English, and fed back and forth, until the translation ceded and the statement no longer changed.
