<"HERE"> was a public art piece located on Miami-based websites during the month of April, 2014. An original line of verse by poet Joshua Mehigan was coded into the website of participating organizations. No special attention was called to the line of verse, nor was the project announced on the participating websites themselves. 

The line comes from Mehigan’s poem “Here”, from his forthcoming collection, Accepting the Disaster (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2014), and was embedded with a hyperlink to the full text of the poem. The list of Miami-based websites to participate was extensive:
