Plinko Poetry is an interactive installation that allows users to create blackout poetry using current news titles from different news sources. The interface allows people to remove words from their original context to become a playful and satirical reminder of their meaning. / Players can pick a disc and insert the disc into the top slot on Plinko Poetry machine. The peg board in the front of the machine will alter disc’s path in random direction, and the words behind the disc will be immediately highlighted. In this way, the machine blackouts all other words and displays a poem only with the words selected by the disc. Then the thermal printer below the display will print out the poem for players.
