P.L.A.Y. (Poetry, Light, Art, You) was conceived as an event score. Via the Periscope mobile platform, folks from all walks of life were invited to present a poem about light. The poem could have simply included the word “light” in it or the word “light” could have been interpreted e.g. weight, mood, scientific, environmental, spiritual or visual. The poems could take any form such as sonnets, haikus, raps, limericks, or riddles. Individuals were free to perform texts by published poets or to improvise on the spot.
