it is this time of year again, at which Boris Müller puts online his newest 'visual theme' for a yearly international literature festival. this year, the theme consists of beautiful visualizations of the poetry texts themselves.
each words correspond to a numerical code by adding the alphabetical values of its letters together. this number is mapped onto the position on a circle, & marked by a red dot. gray lines connect the dots in the sequence the words appear in the poem. the diameter of the circle on which the dots are placed is decided by the length of the poem.
