Nature’s 4-day poemcube creation

by Nick Montfort · , 12:00 am

YOU are a Cubic Creature, Opposites create Opposites. Until cornered, word is fictitious.

Actually that isn’t what Jason Nelson claims in his The Poetry Cube; that’s from somewhere else. But it is the case that poem has four corners in The Poetry Cube, and poem can be loaded with sixteen newly-written or previously-saved lines, which are combinatorially reconfigured as one clicks to rotate or move to a different level. The lines and their framework really function as a machine, and they show off that function in a visually compelling way. The project was developed by Rory Hering and is now in beta. Jason welcomes feedback on it.
