Poetry on the Road

Creating fictional landscapes from poetry and establishing a visual identity for the 14th Poetry on the Road Festival, in Bremen, Germany.

The words of twenty five authors from fifteen coun­tries and spanning four languages formed the compu­ta­tion­al basis of different generated media forms. The visualization utilized natural language processing, visual mapping, Jan Rybicki’s TransVis research for detecting author finger­ prints, Yahoo’s geocoding service, and lemmata distri­bu­tions to establish textual and geographical relationships of the different texts. The landscape formed a graphical map of a fictional poetic and abstract illus­tra­tions in a proced­ural design frame­work, and continued a series of more than ten years in which all works are in the festival presented in a unique visual form.
