The others did it

The others did it is a series of poems whose content and presentation change under the influence of online data on dynamic events that occur elsewhere in the world. The text has a thematic kinship with these data, but this relationship is not uniform, not one-dimensional. The reader of the text has no influence on the content and presentation of that text.

Channel of the North grows and shrinks as a function of the tide in the Westerschelde river on the Dutch/Belgian border.

Mood Exchange Rate is determined by the percentage the Amsterdam Stock Exchange Index rises or falls relative to the opening price.

The right person depends on the time of the day at four different places in the world.This poem is not yet translated, but a Dutch version is online.

The others did it is made for nY, website and magazine for literature, criticism & entertainment.
