Multiverse was created by Katie Parlante and Mimi Yin.

Multiverse is a set of simple rules that bring 3 strangers from the tweeting public together to create a momentary, singular expression of desire, nostalgia, rumination and locomotion that evokes the city and the people in it. Multiverse generates a progression of 3-line poems with a predisposition for verbal accidents that take advantage of quirks in the English language and the bazaar of human emotion on display in the Twitter public feed.

Multiverse on The Highline will be installed 100 feet west of The Highline between 19th and 20th Streets every Friday and Saturday evening from sunset to closing time from Sept 7 - Oct 13, 2012.

Multiverse on 14th took place in the fountain at Union Square Park as a part of the Art in Odd Places 2009 Festival and Multiverse on 37th was a second installation of Multiverse in July 2010, a projection at Chashama at 266 West 37th Street (just east of 8th Ave). We added a fourth poem ("Office") for this installation.
