Webcam Poetry, 2018

Webcam poetry is closed for the time being before its next exhibition. But will be open again soon! Check back in a while or check my twitter account @portablestorm (probably easier). I'll always post future exhibitions there.


Why do I close webcam poetry periodically?

Webcam poetry uses a lot of advanced machine learning to gather the context of what is going on within the scene. This technology requires powerful servers to run it on an hourly basis, and I can't afford to have it running 24/7. Therefore, I instead run the piece for set timeframes every few months. This way anyone can see Webcam Poetry, and I don't lose all my savings! It would cost around £700 a year to run the artwork 24/7.

You can check out information about the piece, including videos of it working on my main site here: https://joe.ac/webcam-poetry
