Blue Poetry

I spend every morning using my computer to read news and respond new e-mails. A certain subjectivity of the world news is to find on the social media Facebook. Everyday I compose a new poem based on the content of this site, and afterwards I stored them on the internet.

Tristan Tzara, gave the following instructions on how "To make a Dadaist Poem" (1920):

"Take a newspaper.
Take some scissors.
Choose from this paper an article the length you want to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Next carefully cut out each of the words that make up this article and put them all in a bag.
Shake gently.
Next take out each cutting one after the other.
Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag.
The poem will resemble you.
And there you are—an infinitely original author of charming sensibility, even though unappreciated by the vulgar herd."

Based on this tradition I'll propose the following instruction on "How to make a Blue Poem" (2014 - 2015):

"Take a device with an operating system. Open a recording application. Connect your device with Internet. Choose from this Internet an article the lengh you want to make your poem. Cut out, copy or record the article. Next carefully copy out each of the words that make up this article and put them all in a bag. Shake gently. Next take out each cutting one after the other. Copy conscientiously in the order in which they left the bag and read it. The poem will resemble you. And there you are—an infinitely original author of charming sensibility, even though unappreciated by the vulgar herd."
