1. Mini Thesis: The (Un)writing Poetry Project


    from Lisa B. Woods Added 217 5 0

    Graduate Design at California College of the Arts (CCA) Thesis R&D, Fall 2012 Assignment: Create a mini-thesis in a week. Is my exploration space too wide? Too narrow? Do my ideas have legs? Thesis exploration space: I'm interested in using technology to enable people to co-create in surprising and inspiring ways. I wish to engage crowds but not exploit them. I want to create work that respects individuality while simultaneously intimating the collective potential humanity has yet to realize. Solution: My mini-thesis concept is a video prototype for the (Un)writing Poetry Project, a web-based tool that allows people to create virtual "blackout poems." Digitized books from the public domain (suitable for all ages) are the raw material for the poems. All archived poems can be browsed and shared in a myriad of ways.

            This is a timelapse I made as I was working on a black out poem. I was in Germany and wanted to see what English words I could find in a German newspaper and then make a poem from some of those word.
