Staring at your smartphone is allowed for once: looking for WiFi, looking at poetry.
WiFi Poetry invisibly fills a space with poetry, transmitting the words over WiFi frequencies. And thus transforming the location into a poetic space. Not bound by physical space, creating a poetic presence, only visible with your smartphone or laptop.
These days people tend not to look at their surroundings, but at their phone, always searching for a connection. WiFi poetry surrounds those who are nearby with words, poetry, which show up where they least expect it, but look the most, right in their smartphones.
Every 10 minutes WiFi Poetry broadcasts a random poem which is detectable and readable on any WiFi-enabled device. Connecting to one of the networks will also open a locally hosted webpage, displaying the currently broadcasted poem.
