Poetry by Numbers is a creative project seeking to explore data through poetry. In 2015 we will be commissioning original poetry, pairing poets with data specialists and partnering with brands to draw meaning from data.
We live in an age that’s seeing an explosion in the volume of data we create and have access to. As the volume of data grows, drawing meaning from it becomes increasingly difficult.
We have an army of specialists, from designers to scientists, working to extract meaning from data and explain it in a way that people can understand. This task is hard and becoming harder.
Throughout history, one group of people have been able to absorb the complex world around them, distil meaning from it and communicate that meaning in a way that people not only understand but also feel. They are poets.
