Toni, The Urban Poet is an installation made in collaboration with Fragmentin , and exposed at MuDA. It is a project on participative poetry driven by a pink box which invites the passersby to stop by opening up and revealing a set of three buttons. Each button corresponds to a different mood (calm, stressed, intrigued) which influences a piece of poetry generated and displayed inside the museum. An algorithm based on probabilistic Context Free Grammars (CFG) generates poetry, which is then parsed via sentiment analysis in order to match the average mood of those who interacted with the box.
