'Daniel Donahoo's Lego poetry is intriguing because it is both literary and, like the work of the famed poet e. e. cummings, a visual artform as well. But more than that, it is highly accessible - and wonderful for the time-poor to read and write. With a vocabulary of about 600 words printed on Lego blocks, Donahoo reassembles the blocks into delicate, poetic constructions and places them wherever he happens to be - on a parking meter, or a train ticket machine, or a park bench. He then photographs each word-sculpture with his mobile phone, posts it to various internet sites and shares the images around.' Source: The Age (Life & Style) 28 May (2011): 27
