This project is constituted by several
flash movies made with the prototype of the first wristwatch camera. Each
flash movie has a sequence of images taken 'frame by frame' of people reciting
a verse that I previously wrote. So, even when I employed a sophisticated
machine to create this work, the making process is based in the most basic
principle of film making.
When you enter the project you will see 3
different faces that establish a dialogue between them. The interaction
among the characters produces a poem. Also, the number of different poems/combinations
increases periodically. Right now you can obtain hundreds of poems.
The action of using a a watch to create dynamic
poems has its precedent in one of my previous works called ‘the poetic
clock’, a machine that converts time into poetry which generates 86.400
different poems daily.

Poetic Dialogues 2.0 has its conceptual roots
in a work titled Poetic Dialogues 1.0, which is a 2001 commission of New
Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for its Turbulence web site and was made
possible with funding from the Jerome Foundation. Poetic Dialogues 1.0
can be viewed at Turbulence.
