An assisted rewriting of William Wordsworth’s classic Romantic landscape poem ‘I wandered lonely as a cloud’ using the what3words geolocating application. The what3words application has assigned every 3x3m square on the planet with a unique three word address that will never change. The poem was copied into the application in multiples of three words, giving the closest possible match in words, and also an actual location. The resultant data of a three word paring and a satellite image of the location referred to was used as the content of the poem.  

The work was developed with support from Bergen Centre for Electronic Art (BEK) and ReImagine Europe’s Future DiverCities project.
