Create Dadaist poetry based on your location.
Sauntering verse generates Dadaist poetry based on your physical location. Take your device for a walk and see poetry created in front of your eyes.
Every location on earth is identified by a combination of two numbers. Centred on Greenwich, in England, this coordinate system divides the world up in 'latitudes' and 'longitudes' and a combination of the two defines a unique point on the globe.
Two long strings of numbers are not always easy to remember, so what3words came up with the idea to assign a unique combination of three words to roughly every 3x3 meter area around the globe. As with latitude and longitude, each combination of three words uniquely identifies a point on the globe. Therefore, if you move around, you are actually moving through locations with their own unique combination of words. The perfect starting point for a fine poem.
How to make a Dadaist poem was once famously described by Tristan Tzara, one of the founders of the Dada movement, as taking a pair of scissors, cutting up a newspaper article, and then putting the random words back together.
When creating poetry, Sauntering verse does this in a true Dadaist spirit, creating interpretations that are unique to your location and never the same.
What's New in Version 1.0.1
😎bright idea for an app
Refreshingly new app. Dada movement isn't new, but this app creates new content by pulling together resources we otherwise may not even be aware of. It affords us fresh exploration of our world from the hitherto unseen portal of our mobile device's location services... This isn't just looking for gas stations nearby, it's going deeper into the airwaves, mashing, cutting, and mixing the results into a new form of stream of consciousness. Perhaps an ordered chaos of locationess?
Well done! 🖊🏃🌎
Bizarre, absurd... I love it
Every once a while you stumble upon something completely random that you never knew you had any interest in and then once you start using it you can't believe you hadn't known about it before.
That's exactly what this app is.
Just get it now!
I had never heard of Sauntering verses until a year ago when it first piqued my interest. And now this app takes it to a new creative level! Wonderful that you can pinpoint exactly where people are creating and contributing. Tzara would be ecstatic!
