Reid Bingham, a local New Brunswick guru of all things circuit bent, has 25 small LED displays that he rounded up when Best Buy was doing some sort of promotion. They are small wallet sized little jobbers that can display up to five, 256 character displays at different speeds in red LEDs. He's proposing that people involved in the festival send him poems, 256 character in length, to be read upside down or horizontally. He'll then program them into the displays and visitors to the festival can then "paint/decorate/mutilate" them during the festival! Electronic-Hand-Held-Visual-Poems...who knew?!
Take that Jenny Holzer!
