The incredible One Day Poem Pavilion installation by art student Jiyeon Song creatively uses the sun light to display a poem for 8 hours during the day.

The ingeniously crafted installation uses a "complex array of perforations, light passing through the pavilion's surface produces shifting patterns, which transform into the legible text of a poem."

The unique arrangement of the perforations reveals different poems depending on the solar calendar: "During summer solstice, the poem will contain the theme of “new life”. During winter solstice, the poem will be on “reflection and the passing of time.”

According to Song, the poem can be seen between 8 AM and 4PM. Each poem line lasts about an hour. Stats for Projected Poems Trending: Older & Chilly
