Pablo Neruda Poems 2014: Star's Hologram Will Be Featured in Chile on 110th Birthday
It's not just musicians that get holograms.
Chilean poet Pablo Neruda will get a hologram for his 110th birthday, which takes place on July 12, according to the Neruda Foundation.
There will be a big celebration for his birthday, including a music concert and poetry recitals. Because he had festive birthday celebrations, the Neruda Foundation wants to honor his upcoming birthday in the same way.
On the eve of his birthday, he will appear on the streets of Santiago as a hologram.
Beamvertising, which will be created by Delight Lab, will allow the poet to walk the streets as he did more than four decades ago.
He will start at the Bellavista neighborhood at the La Chascona museum, where he will appear writing. He will continue walking the neighborhood, where he will pass the national library and the central house for the University of Chile, where his works and personal library are conserved. When he turned 50, he donated his books to the university.
Neruda will also meet with Darío Oses, the director of the Pablo Neruda Library, who will then talk about the book of his unpublished works, the Foundation notes.
After that, Neruda will return to his house. It will be four hours after he embarked on his walk.
The poetry recital will take place on his actual birthday, and on top of all the events that are taking place, a multilingual Pablo Neruda library will be donated to a school in Antarctica, where people from many different countries live.
Recently, unpublished works by the poet were found and authenticated by experts. The poems were written between the 1950s and 1960s, which is when he wrote some of his most popular works. The poet died in 1973.
