About

The Red Room Company presents The Disappearing, a new app that (literally) explores poetry and place. Transform the world around you with new poems by some of Australia’s finest poets, through a poetic map charting traces, fragmentary histories, impressions and memories.
 
BLUE poems are featured works specially commissioned by The Red Room Company for this project.
 
RED poems were selected to be part of The Disappearing collection.
 
YELLOW poems are user-generated works uploaded to the app.
 
GREEN poems were written by students as part of Papercuts, The Red Room Company's creative literacy program.
 
Beginning with a collection of over 100 poems about Sydney, The Disappearing will stretch across Australia during 2012.
 
Along with previously unpublished poetry, The Disappearing features exclusive videos of readings and interviews with poets.
 
Upload your own poems to The Disappearing, preserving ideas, emotions and experiences about their own environment that vanish over time.
 
The Disappearing was only possible because of the generosity of our loyal supporters. The Red Room Company gives its heartfelt thanks to:
