A Poet Recites

By 02-01-2015

The poet Ramsey Nasr made ​​a personal selection of twenty one poetic highlights of the Dutch literature since the fourteenth century. Grrr designed and produced a website for this project.

The poems are published in a book and with every poem, a QR code is printed. These link directly to twenty one poetry clips, specially made for this project. These film versions place the poems in modern times, in the hope and conviction to reach a new generation of poetry readers. The focus was on tablets and mobiles because of the QR codes, but a lot of love was put into the desktop version as well.

Ramsey Nasr (1974, Rotterdam) is a poet, writer, actor and director.
