Short message service (SMS) is extremely popular today. Currently it is being mainly used for peer-to-peer communication. Electronic displays can be seen everywhere and those are mainly used to convey information to the masses rather than provide artistic and social communication. BlogWall extends the SMS to a new level of self expression and public communication by combining art and poetry. Furthermore it will provide a means of expression in the language that young people understand, and the forms of social communication. The user stands in front of a projected screen and sends a SMS to a given number. The system can display users SMS in an animated manner. It also provides users to participate in polls. The most notable feature of the application is its ability to create poetry in multiple languages such as English, Korean, Chinese poems or Japanese “Haiku" all based on the SMS. This is a step into new forms of cultural computing.
