When the phone rings from within the box, you are are greeted by the voice of The Poetry Robot, a highly developed artificial intelligence. Designed by the Department of Poetry, The Poetry Robot is consigned to exist within the box, which it isn’t too pleased about. However, it is being a kind-hearted being and, she assures us, definitely not fixated on human extermination.
Every audience interaction is unique, and at the end of the conversation, The Poetry Robot selects and prints a personalised poem it thinks the participant will benefit from, based on the conversation.
“That was brilliant and funny, what a fabulous idea. Made me smile a lot!!!” – Audience member
