Pocket Poetry

Description (in English): 

Pocket Poetry presents poetic texts as electronic objects. Each object is a poem. It has a sensor, a four line text display and an Arduino microcontroller. Each object reacts on the particular aspects of the environment: sounds, movements, light or sometimes smell even. Spectator can drive some objects by handling tumblers changing the generated poetry inside it. Some objects react on the spectator presence unexpected for her/him. After each interaction text on the screen is changed. Each object has tripod or alternatively it is possible to hung it on the wall or put on the pedestal. The objects are self-sufficient and only need electricity (220V). At the moment several sub serials including one with the Soviet time underground poetry are done. Here the “DADvA” serial with the texts of DADA poets is presented.
