Title: Poetry Cube and Birds Still Warm from Flying
He used 3 dimensional space in order to create a cube that moves to different direction and reads 3 dimensional concrete poetry. The cube combination allows the reader to move the poem in 3 dimensional space. Interactive poetry cubes allow multi-linear/dimensional play and reconfiguration of the poem. Additionally, “each of the rows and columns can be moved to further recreate the placement and graphical nature of the poem. Each of the sides of the poem are colour coded to give the reader a reference point for the initial configuration” (Helioza).

Silva is a poet, whose work is characterized by its playful form of language and voice use. “Total Man is a poem write for the Electronic Voice which is an experimental literature, performance and music show that feeds on the corpse of paranormal pseudo-science” (Silva).

3. S S Prasad
Title: 100 poems (nanopoems)
S S Prasad, in his nanopoems, attempts to engage with new technologies of writing and with code as language. Collected in print in the book 100 Poems, these nanopoems were first written for the microchip as surface for inscription. Prasad, other than being a poet, happens to be an engineer working for a prominent Silicon Valley company.
Most of the poems in the binary language of zeroes and ones are primarily concerned with marking time on, or across, the page space. The binary digits operate as image, as sign, as object. They explore a visual poetics which functions sometimes in the concrete, and other times in the conceptual, mode.
Prasad’s poems use the surface oppositionality of this language to generate tension. They also use binary sequentially. This recalls the combinations and strings of code written by computer programmers. Here is the link where you can see more poems as well pictures of how they use microchips.
