Augmented Reality Poetry Book: Between Page and Screen

We are always on the lookout for new ways in which that most protean of art forms, poetry, can be presented. And here’s something of a landmark that harnesses the power of a computer interfacing the internet to deliver the poetic goods.

There are no words printed on the pages of this book, Between Page and Screen, which contains a series of letters between two lovers. Instead, each page has a geometric shape and a web address leading to the book’s website. To access the text, readers visit the website and hold up each page to their webcam. The website detects the geometric shapes then displays the poetry in text animations.

The video below shows the book in action.
