Digibury: Dan Simpson - Crowdsourced poetry

  1. 1. Cutting-Up Art and Crowdsourcing Poems Dan Simpson
  2. 2. Cut with the Kitchen Knife through the Beer-Belly of the Weimar Republic - Hannah Höch, 1919
  3. 3. Portrait of Tristan Tzara - Lajos Tihanyi, 1927
  4. 4. Writing is fifty years behind painting. - Brion Gysin, 1964
  5. 5. Open Letter to Life Magazine from Minutes to Go - Brion Gysin, 1960
  6. 6. When you cut into the present the future leaks out. - William S. Burroughs, 1960
  7. 7. The permutated poems set the words spinning off on their own; echoing out as the words of a potent phrase are permutated into an expanding ripple of meanings which they did not seem to be capable of when they were struck into that phrase. - Brion Gysin, 1964
  8. 8. It's been fun being part of National Poetry Day 2012 thanks to you A strange combination of importance and pride with the feeling that I'm just a small part of something bigger. Makes me feel more creative than if I wrote one or two lines of poetry on my own. It made me smile! I felt happy. I felt like I'd made a real contribution to the poem. I felt like a poet.
  9. 9. All writing is in fact cut-ups. A collage of words read heard overheard. - William S. Burroughs, 1963
