In modern rationalized globalized world, no space left for lyricism. Poetry of today is stock exchange rates, oil and gold prices, celebrity news and ad slogans. Poetic Economy brilliantly embodies this idea, at the same time leaving a hope that there is still place for art in this world, if nothing else as shimmering lights of advertisement boards.
Poetic Economy visually deconstructs a traditional poetic text (Goethe, Shakespeare, Pushkin, you to deside) and replaces it with a news feed coming in real time through RSS channels. A user can specify the news sources as well as frequency of the news update.
