Stephanie Bhim / VisPo, a poetry reading app

Stephanie Bhim
Stephanie Bhim

VisPo is an app that makes reading and interpreting poetry accessible. It is the result of a design research project exploring how visual communication design and screen technology can facilitate interpreting and enjoying texts in ways that printed media cannot afford.

Within the app is a series of poems each with their own set of visual devices. These devices illuminate objective language techniques, and in turn, the thematic elements of the poem. Vispo is educational without being didactic, it respects that reading poetry is a personal experience. The visual devices serve as cues to further interpretation, rather than definitive answers.
