This is a personal project I started to explore animated kinetic typography using the poster billboard medium. I can imagine these as either AR or printed posters but I always wanted to see an animated billboard, disrupting something that is usually perceived as a static medium.
I would love to see these poems used in city spaces to enhance and reflect a 'lost' art form that creates a sense of atmosphere where these spaces are used to sell products to people, I wanted to propose a more meaningful experience in the online digital world.
Matsuo Basho - falling sick on a journey / my dream goes wandering / over a field of dried grass
Matsuo Basho - the old pond / a frog leaps in / sound of the water
Walt Whitman - o to sail in a ship / to leave this steady unendurable land / to leave the tiresome sameness of streets / the sidewalks and the houses / to leave you / o you solid motionless land / and entering a ship / to sail and sail and sail
