Jubilee Lines, Carol Ann Duffy’s collection of poetry marking the Queen’s diamond jubilee, has been reinterpreted in a HTML5-based online experience called 60 Years in 60 Poems. Commissioned for The Space, a new digital arts platform developed by the Arts Council and the BBC, 60 Years in 60 Poems uses actors’ recordings, visualizations, and archive film footage, to offer new ways of exploring poetry.

Visualizations & HTML5 Lift Poetry Off The Pages

Designer Stefanie Posavec created representations of  the sound of the poems read out loud, translating frequencies and decibel levels into circular visualizations. You can navigate the poems by year, by poet, through archive or by theme, plotting your path through 60 years of history.
