Blackout Poetry

“Blackout Poetry” is the process by which  one views an existing text, then blocks out parts of words, lines or paragraphs, selecting the phrases and words  they  want in a new construction of meaning. It is both a  cathartic experience  of creative making as well as an  exciting form of scavenging for possible meanings.

After inviting the community to share new meanings of 5 texts through their own blackout poetry, a selection of poems will be on view at UAS Online.

"Blackout Poetry " is led by  Noor Murteza,  arts administration, education and policy; Will Nickley , design; and  Madison Sabatelli , design, with support from Urban Arts Space’s  Hybrid Arts Lab,  a multi-venue learning lab that experiments with how art is imagined, made, viewed and understood.
