laser conveyor

Contribute to a giant collaborative stream of consciousness poem.

With a conveyor belt.

And huge frickin’ lasers.

Black wavy line.


















Ahead of the main event we design a workshop programme in collaboration with local writers to curate the word ingredients of a deconstructed poem that means something to local people or connect with your wider event or programme themes.

On the night, visitors pick a small bundle of word tiles from the prepared selection and place them into a continuous stream of collaborative poetry via conveyor belt.

Cameras trace the feed from the conveyor belt and the words are presented in real time as giant lasers wrapping text around the face of your chosen building or site.
