Words Converge is a typographic installation featuring fragments of texts
by young poets floating on spherical weather balloons perfect forms
which, though fragile, can reach the very limits of the sky.
Digital artwork acts as a virtual library of texts from Greece,
Georgia, Israel, Romania and the UK, exploring the
elemental and transitory nature of poetry.
