Group Erasure Creation - Presidential Tweets

  • Chase Public 1569 Chase Avenue Cincinnati, OH, 45223 United States (map)

Erasure -- is a form of found poetry or found art created by erasing words from an existing text in prose or verse and framing the result on the page as a poem. The results can be allowed to stand in situ or they can be arranged into lines and/or stanzas. Erasure is a way to give an existing piece of writing a new set of meanings, questions, or suggestions. It lessens the trace of authorship but requires purposeful decision making. What does one want done to the original text? Does a gesture celebrate, denigrate, subvert, or efface the source completely? One can erase intuitively by focusing on musical and thematic elements or systematically by following a specific process regardless of the outcome.

To celebrate Presidents Day, 2018 - join us as we create erasure poems from rich source material; presidential tweets.  We’ll have tweets printed out on and taped to the wall, become a part of the group deciding how to transform them into new expressions, poems, and thoughts.
