Color Stories of Poetry

Generative art, based on letter frequency analysis of a poem. 

In this series, I'm exploring the shapes and colors of poetry. With each character in the poem represented as if a bead on a string. The color for each letter is determined by the frequency of that letter in the poem.  At the end of each word, the string bends so that it coils into a distinct shape for the poem.

These are examples of poems that some of my friends suggested: The Man Watching, Maggie and Millie, and The Age Demanded.
