Poetic Dialogues 1.0

March 2002

Supported by Jerome Foundation

Poetic Dialogues 1.0 is constituted by 18 different flash movies made with a high-tech wristwatch camera. Each flash movie has a sequence of images taken frame by frame of people reciting a verse that I previously wrote. So, even when I employed a sophisticated machine to do this work, the process was the same that was used at the beginning of cinema. When you enter the project you will see 3 different faces that establish a dialogue between them. The interaction among the characters generates a poem. Also, the number of different poems/combinations that you can get is 216. This metaphorical process of using a watch to create dynamic poems was taken from a previous work called ‘the poetic clock’, a machine that converts time into poetry which generates 86.400 different poems daily.
