In an unexpected collaboration local poet Nandi Chinna will team up with a Dutch robot for the 2015 Fremantle Street Arts Festival.

SKRYF, which is the brainchild of Eindhoven artist Gijs van Bon, will creep around the Fremantle Town Hall leaving a trail of Chinna’s poetry created from piles of sand. »
