“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.
