Google Poetrics


Poetrics is the result of a competition run in partnership between Google and Central Saint Martins to create an “interactive experience for the Kings Cross community”. Poetrics was designed by MA Narrative Environments students Laura Ventura Ricart, Yunqi Cai and Emily Kimura.

Poetrics is an interactive art installation that turns random words into poetry that then appears on an electronic billboard.

The installation consists of microphones placed on 17 LED panels and uses Google’s voice search technology and the Google Speech platform to recognise what is being said, and then placing it within the newly created poetry.

MANE Student Laura Ventura explains: “The interactive wall collects and assembles words spoken by the people of Kings Cross and turns them into random poetry made by all.”
