In the shade of humming elevators

The multimedia book of poems “In the shade of humming elevators” by Beata Sosnowska is an interactive poetic game with the viewer. Based on her works, nearly thirty artists representing different fields of art created interpretations of her poems. In the Multimedia section a game was created with an interface in the form of a block of flats in 3D and rooms containing interactive, film, animation and graphic interpretations of the poems. The book has got its continuation in a form of a website, where users can post their own interpretations of the poems. The aim of this project is to create a virtual block of flats’ community. The editorially thoughtfully released book and the CD that comes with it, containing a poetic game, as well as the website, are in a way kind of a poetic event, which each of the newcomers has a chance to experience.
