Poetry in Motion

Or, perhaps, ba-a-a-ad poetry:
A North East writer has been given a grant of £2,000 to use sheep to create random poems, which also utilise the deepest workings of the universe.
Each of the animals has a word from a poem written on their backs and as they wander about the words take a new poetic form each time they come to rest.

But the exercise is not just an attempt to create living poems, it is also, according to the poet, an exercise in quantum mechanics.
So if you start seeing people wearing sweaters with random words written across the back, now you know where the wool came from.
