Electric Poetry

A web interface for constructing poems to be broadcast in realtime on the walls of London's underground stations, for London Transport's Platform for Art (with J Pletts).

Similar to the popular fridge game, people assemble words into poems which then appear in public or commercial spaces around the city.

A poem is constructed on-screen by dragging and dropping words onto a virtual page. The poem is then submitted and "published" on a website and projected round the city.

[Electric Poetry is now live at the London Underground New Media website. Be sure to click the "Electric Poetry" link.].
