Interactive Poetry Platforms
60 Years in 60 Poems Provides a New Way to Experience Poetry

By: Katherine Vong (Superstar) Jul 14, 12

‘60 Years in 60 Poems’ is a new poetry platform that allows users to explore poetry in a completely different way. The platform takes ‘Jubilee Lines,’ a collection of poems by Carol Ann Duffy and translates it into a interactive, Internet-based experience that includes images, recordings and film footage, essentially augmenting and re-imagining the way we experience poetry.

The 60 Years in 60 Poems platform was commissioned for The Space, and it features an interactive design that was created by Stefanie Posavec. You can listen to the poems, which are read aloud by actors, and see the way the rise and fall of certain lines can be reinterpreted into a circular visual pattern. The platform also lets you choose which poems to read by theme, date, author and more to plot “your path through 60 years of history,” as PSFK puts it.
