There is a random aspect to love, we can not predict with whom we will fall in-love, where he or she will come from, and in which language we will hear words of affection that will excite us to our core and will flood our emotions. This net-artwork reappropriates real time tweets about love, to compose an endless poem, by using semantic analysis algorithms. Random choices, made by each reader's computer, float up random tweets, from which the poem is composed, thus each reader gets a different poem. Poetry In Motion relies on networks of communication and social groups on twitter to be able to compose a sort of crowd-sourced poetry. By showing us streams of love tweets from the last few seconds, Poetry In Motion proves to us exactly how much love there is in the world every second (a lot!).
