PoemAPP "Covid-19" was developed by Pablo Gobira and Antônio Mozelli, members of the Laboratory of Front Poetics (http://labfront.tk) as a result of the research and development projects "Digital literacy of digital art: art producing new realities in basic education" (CNPq, FAPEMIG and PROPPG/UEMG) and "New realities: artistic interfaces and construction of realities" (CNPq, FAPEMIG and PROPPG/UEMG). The PoemAPP "Covid-19" is a digital poem in augmented reality. To experience the work, the application must be installed on your smartphone with the Android operating system, so that you can see and interact with the poem. After installing the application: 1) open the image of the virus causing Covid-19 on a screen you can point your smartphone camera at; 2) open the Covid19 app on your smartphone and point the rear camera at the virus image; 3) if you want to interact with the application while the words come out of the virus just tap the touch screen.
