Poetry Hopscotch

Poetry Hopscotch, PHv1.0, is a new media application that explores the literary cut up technique through the use of digital technology. Created by Jana Astanov and new media artists Rolf van Gelder with an aim to establish poetry as exploratory landscape for new media art.

CONCEPT: From the structure of poetic verse to the linguistic chaos from which new forms emerge, creating a digital repository of an immersive poetry co-creation process, by means of random appropriation as well as original content uploaded in real time by the users via their mobile devices.

The concept of the cut-up technique can be traced to Dadaists, it was then popularized in the late 1950s and early 1960s by such writers as Burroughs, Gysin, Burns and Cortazar (1963 “Hopscotch”).
