SMS poetry on Speakers Corner

In Huddersfield (Northern England), Speakers Corner, an interactive art project that links a 15m LED screen with the web, the street and text messaging, is inviting the public to send text messages directly to the display from their mobile phones or via the website.

Since the begining of this month, the project “Nameless Poem” encourages people to respond to the refrain “Tell me something of this,” written by Liverpool poet Eleanor Rees. So far, the outcome is quite promising.
