    For the 2018 Poetry Festival of Larvik, Norway, Fredrik Høyer collaborated with programmer Daniel Mahal to produce a part human, part computer-generated, poem that restructures the Norwegian language into borderline coherent sentences. Snippets from the 8 minute spoken piece Men vi er et slags sammen? (the English translation, “But we are a sort of together?”, is equally jumbled) were typeset in Monokrom Skriftforlag’s Riks stencil typeface, cut out of large sheets of plexiglass and spray painted onto the pavement outside the local cultural center Bølgen with a special nanotechnology coating that repels water molecules. The result is an art piece that only reveals itself to Larvik’s citizens on rainy days. The project was facilitated by Kulturbyrået Mesén.
