Description

Speak v. 3 is a platform with which to experiment with digital poetry. Users can enter their own text and interact with it in the Speak way, or they can feed the app with text from a Twitter stream.

Speak v. 1 was an interactive poem about mistaken identity and the confusion that happens when people believe you are somebody you are not. V. 2 was a mini-platform hosting texts about place, voice and the nature of poetry itself. It features four commissioned texts, written by well-known guest poets:
— J.R. Carpenter
— David Jhave Johnston
— Jim Andrews
— Aya Karpinska

Speak is the first app in the Poetry for Excitable [Mobile] Media (P.o.E.M.M. ) Cycle. We will create a series of ten such apps, each exploring different interaction methods, collaboration strategies, and publication methods. The P.o.E.M.M.s are also part of a series of exhibition-scale interactive touch-works integrated with large-scale printed texts. To find out more about the P.o.E.M.M. project, visit www.poemm.net.

Ratings and Reviews

Function creating purpose

I think it's easy to say what it does not do without looking at what it does. It searches Twitter or has pre loaded text to play with.

You can also add your own text which is a feature I like most of all. Then, the screen goes blank and filled with a black space of jumbled letters. You move your finger across the screen catching all the greatness you just wrote and let it hang on the branched route of your finger. Done.

It doesn't have bells and whistle and what if's because its not the function. It's a way to convey a thought by slowing the reader done to appreciate every word displayed.

Wonderful

I just downloaded this not even an hour ago and I'm already more than addicted. Absolutely beautiful flow of words and the minimalist in style of this app just makes it super gorgeous.

I love this app and think it is a great way to play with words. The feature that allows you to enter your own words makes it all the more personal.
