POETRY THREATS is a web-based project by Tim Grover, a Chicago-based new media artist, which aims to “reclaim certain ‘threat’ words monitored by the DHS on social media sites. Users have a chance to take these words and turn them into art through the virtual magnet poetry board.”

The above image is a poem I generated/made using the website. It’d be great if the project offered more pronouns, verbs, conjunctions, and so forth, to augment the poetic potentials of the project; the selection of connective magnetic words unrelated to the DHS keywords is somewhat scant, therefore you find yourself looking for a pronoun like “her” to no avail, but the limitations do provide an interesting challenge and make the final outcome more cryptic.

You can create a poem of your own, or check out previous submissions at: http://poetrythreats.com/

“Link Garden”
by Mark Beasley

“Link Garden is a composition of found stylesheets and images hard-linked to their external sources from around the web. As time goes on, this drawing will slowly collapse from link rot and eventually revert back into a blank page.” — M.B.

Prisoner’s Cinema (2012) by Joshua Gen Solondz

Prisoner’s Cinema
Joshua Gen Solondz, Los Angeles, 2012, 10 min, video, sound

Essentially a trance-inducing flicker film, Prisoner’s Cinema opens by establishing a simple, yet aggressive, black and white flashing sequence, defined by its frenetic pace and hypnotic pattern. It assaults and entrances the viewer with its rapid optical rhythm; a low-toned droning sound and a high frequency stuttering provide a sonic anchor that augments the hypnotic effects of the flashing imagery.

Before long, the flashing evolves into a sequence that introduces faint optical art patterns, which are sprinkled between the flickering of black and white and grey frames, jolting the visual shock even further. These faint patterns become brighter, and clearer, and more bold, flash-morphing onward to reveal a circular portal emblazoned with an op art pattern.

It’s a blinding and spellbindingly fun ride of coruscation.
