Description (in English): 

WhereAbouts is an interactive poem about urban life. It juxtaposes planning and order with movement and chaos. The neatly planned and perfectly ordered design of poetry in the form of short verses gives way to the busy ant-like rush of letters in the changing streets designed by the reader, as she drags around the "example" blocks as she pleases. The planned and recognizable city now disappears, and another city emerges, one composed of the bustle of the letters that inhabit it, even as they hurry to leave the screen.
