About the project.

"Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with shades of deeper meaning."

-Maya Angelou, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings


I've always been fascinated by  vintage technologies, the sense of touch, and how a poem can transform into a living, breathing entity simply by being read aloud. The telepoem booth provides a place of nostalgia for older individuals, a novel experience for a younger generation and exposes new audiences to oral poetry--all my favorite things at once!

 You can enter this magical world too: slide the accordion door shut, choose a poem from the Telepoem Directory, and rotary dial to access the poem for an interactive, impactful experience.
