Poetry Machine: Writing With The Head & Body

Assignment: To create a poetry machine that generates a poem through words. I created a headpiece where words were written onto ping pong balls and placed at random at the top of the headpiece. The objective was for the participants to move their head/body in a way that would release a word ball through a tunnel. After the participant got a word they had to write the word onto canvas paper with a marker that is attached to the headpiece. After a certain number of participants, the canvas paper eventually formulated a poem.
