The installation was presented in Montreal for the first time. It is the most recent form of an exploration about randomness in poetry.
One of the very first haïkus -by Bashō (芭蕉)- went like this:
frog leaps in
the haïkus' journey is an open invitation for the audience. Spontaneous thoughts and contributions are combined in a pond of letters constantly stirred by the train's passage.
With one's fingertips, idea seeds are typed on the keyboard. Letters emerge like molecules to form the words' various flavors. A poetic symphony then resonates over the lake.
Each and every lap, the sensible eye of the locomotive finds new words and combinations. A poetic stamp on the forest. Invisible to almost all human eyes.
Thanks a lot to the vvvv team and @mrvux for such a great tool.
