Stephen Emmerson has worked with if p then q to create Cover-ups, a partner piece to his if p then q object Poetry Wholes.
What are they? Each Cover-ups wallet contains 8 templates which you can use to make instantaneous poetry in a range of styles by covering-up texts. The initial run is limited to 10 copies.
Here’s some suggested ways to use them:
Place one of the Cover-ups over a page of text and read the words and fragments of words that remain visible.
Reading the same page of text with each Cover-up yields interesting results but you can use them with any number of texts to create experimental poems, sound poems, audio performances and vocal improvisations.
Have fun. Be serious. Cover-up.
