Projects:

Welcome wall

The word-plays come to life from the poem „Words stirred ”. The jumping, flying, somersaulting ‘word-beings’ invite the visitor to the exhibition.

Travels
The trips made by the poet get recalled on the world map, by exploring photos, poems and documents related to a visited place.

Cross-stitch
The visitor may craft new poems, by stitching together the 16 words the poet used in his „Crossstitch”.

Tangible poems
One can sense the length and height of the syllable of the lines of the poems, by taking into hand the 3d cylinders.

Tap the verse
The visitor is challenged to tap the rhythm of the verses show on the display. If succeeded, yet more difficult ones come.

Fruit poems
Taking them into hands, the apples, the pear, the grape and the berries of the haw tell a poem in which the fruit gets mentioned.

Poems drawn
The visitor may experience how the lines flow out from the pen of the poet. While drawing the lines, we hear the words of the poem.

Blown thoughts
Take a deep breath, and blow the thoughts of the poet o the dandelion. Dancing letters emerge on the screen, which settle, eventually, to the lines of a poem.
Patch the poem

In this installation words get to life, and we can hold light in our palm. Find and catch the wondering words, and move to their place.

Galaxys In this interactive information visualization installation, 80 poems may be explored, representing the universe of the poet’s oeuvre. One can select 2 put of 19 aspects, and see how the poems get rearranged.

 

Whispering wall
Hidden behind the colourful drawings made by Weöres, the poems may be heard if the visitor approaches.
