VSL:WEB // The best text message you’ll receive all day

Think of the N8R TXT art project as a Zen version of Google Earth: You text your location to a number in Ontario, and a description of the scene you’re witnessing is text-messaged back to you — in the form of a haiku.

The site’s creator, Amos Latteier, is based in Toronto (and if you actually live in Toronto, you can expect a hyper-accurate haiku). Another of his art projects allowed people to create
their own protest songs
over the phone; Bell Canada must love the guy! As for us, we can’t wait for Latteier to make his American debut. Blackberry sonnets, anyone?
