The other day I posted about Amos Latteier's project N8R TXT...this morning I texted my location and this is the haiku I received generated in lightening speed:
riverdale park, toronto
downtown Toronto/ close 2 Lockheed Blvd/
wasps at the screen door
I may try another one this afternoon!
Here is Amos's statement about the project:
Cell phones are a common element of the Ontario landscape. We often think of phones as devices that isolate people from their surroundings, but I want to demonstrate that they can be used to connect people to their environments. N8R TXT tries to use technology and humour to give people a fresh perspective on their environment, and provide them with an occasion to look more closely at their surroundings. I believe that our world is full of unexpected pleasure and hybrid splendour.
I gratefully acknowledge the Ontario Arts Council's support of this project. You guys rock.
