Presidential speeches (Humala) employs a parsing software developed by Merhi. It access the website of the Presidency of the Republic of Peru and analyzes all the presidential speeches delivered by Ollanta Humala, former President of Peru.

Words appear on red color and move from left to right within twenty dynamic lines. The software generates new discourses based on the word's frequency of ocurrence. Some words grow in size or vanish depending of their recurrence. The result can be described as an endless Dadaist poem which points out the Peruvian political context.
