More from Sonnet (51)

Tonight we got to spend some more quality time with our current installation, Nikki Wallschlaeger’s Sonnet (51).

As the sun began to set, downtown Columbia was already coming alive. The reflections of countless passersby stepped in and out of the camera’s frame as we photographed the poem. At just under a minute, the poem will repeat over 1,440 times each day. It’s fun to imagine all the serendipitous reading experiences that Nikki’s work will provide on the corner of Hitt and Locust.

If you’re in Columbia, please visit our LED display and experience it for yourself. Whoever said a picture is worth a thousand words had never tried photographing a moving poem.

Sonnet (51) can also be found in Nikki’s book Crawlspace, from Bloof Books.
