Various outdoor advertising locations / Internet

Created by Julia Weist, the poetry students at Dade Correctional Institution, and Exchange for Change

Using synchronized, strategic, high-volume internet searching, artist Julia Weist and thousands of volunteers in South Florida manipulate the Google search trend algorithm so that it prominently features poetry written by students in Miami's detention facilities. For more about the project, visit View-Through's website.

Miami inmates are what becomes of the chicken before I fry it up
Miami inmates are a device used to tell time
Miami inmates are light of the world, bone of men

Miami inmates are believing in the unseen
