idea__ This project is a collection of several poems and a possible visualization of each of them. These bit-poems are created by rules of a specific type of poetry, English sonnet, applied to bits packets.
The contemporary world demands a different way of perceiving the digital aesthetic. For this reason, this project aims to transfer a concept of the non-digital world to the digital world and observe the result. The starting point is something created by humans: poetry. One of the main goals of poetry is to communicate. Each poetry form follows a particular series of rules and conditions. Communication, rules and conditions are the settings of a protocol in the digital world. Visualizing this protocol can create a better non-digital understanding of it. This allows us to explore and discover the result of the translation of such a concept.
