The QR-Poem (2010)
2+2 = Crowd (2003)
2+2 = Crowd is part of the Poetrica project (a series of Nomadic Poems and urban interventions accomplished between 2003 and 2004). The Nomadic Poems are construed with non-alphabetic fonts (dings and system fonts). The process for composing these pieces involves using algebraic operations. Every nomadic poem has in its title the equation that describes the sequences of operations (additions, superpositions, divisions, etc.) I did in the composition process.
