Smile for London invited London’s budding and established poets to uplift and inspire commuters during the bleakest month of the year with poems or prose of up to 40 words.
The pieces were transformed by leading motion artists into 20-second-typographic-films, then screened across London Underground platform screens for two weeks from 16th January 2012.
Taking it’s cue from the seeming indifference to literature and the written word during the London riots, Word in Motion aims to reinvigorate an interest in poetry and writing as well as amuse and visually inspire.
Details of collaborations along with more information about the project can be found at smileforlondon.com
