WOTS, Word On the Site, is a project that believes that the word of people should be seen as frequently as advertising and network news. It should be made clearly visible to the public, such as on LED displays. You can submit a poem, thought, or words of wisdom that may be scrolled on a large LED electronic display in Downtown Boston. For more information, visit http://www.freewalkers.com. This is part of the Digital Art in Public Space Conference.
