Making Media Matter at the University of Denver

It was great to present a mini conference paper on the Glore Embroidery and Hannah Weiner’s notion of “trying to show the mind” (from Mostly About the Sentence).

I rewrote language from the Glore across heavy drop cloths, cut them into individual words, and had the audience make their own poems from it. Instead of only reading the language, they were able to physically handle it, manipulate it, and create their own, spontaneous works from it.

I’m hoping to use these “found poems” as part of an in-process project on the Glore…
