I like those blackout poems. They are a great way to remix newspapers and other printed stuff. It's Recycle Art and Minimalistic. Anyone can do one. It's easy.
In Holland and Belgium we call them Stiftgedichten.
I did a few myself. And liked it. But somehow last sunday I started thinking about making them differently. Then I thought about adding the things I love: spoken word & music. So *bang* that idea hit me straight away: blackout poems with the text as spoken words by someone and my music to go along with it.
On monday I did one with my daughter's voice. Her name is Puck Raaphorst. I love it. It's also easy to combine both things in a video, see my vimeo.
