print("poem)

2022

Print ("poem") is the first physical manifestion of my research in discovering different ways to subvert western design standards through poetry and the act of publishing. Here lies a poetry generator, coded using a database of poetry by famous Queer and POC poets. Whome have a rich history of using poetry and its subjectivities as a tool for survival, resistance, and self expression. Printed on common thermal paper, this first intervention plays with the public's perception of value as receipt paper is recontextualised. This publication intends to push the boundaries of what we understand about printed matter.
