The latest from Google: An interactive art installation that turns your words into poetry

Talk about enhancing a construction project.

Google has unveiled Poetrics, an interactive art installation at the future site of their new offices in the Kings Cross neighborhood of London. Poetrics is the result of  a competition run in partnership with University of the Arts London’s Central Saint Martins to create an “interactive experience for the Kings Cross community”.

The installation utilizes Google’s voice search technology and the Google Speech platform and features 17 LED panels that display the words spoken into various microphones placed around the building site as randomly created poetry.

“We saw Poetrics as an opportunity for people to have a collective and meaningful experience playing with language and the absurd, just as the Dada did in their surrealist game ‘the Exquisite Corpse’ says Laura Ventura Ricart, a member of the Poetrics team.
