Marking time – the participant is required to mark time along with the poet in order to experience the poem. For each stroke on the touch screen with the stylus - one letter of the poem is sequentially revealed. Referencing the famous poem “What you say” by John Cage, this work uses mesostics and embedded numbers to reveal a location – both virtual and physical, and a rejection of participation in problematic systems.
