*As part of the O, Miami Poetry Festival, NY artist Andrea Cote will be setting up her participatory performance “Memorized”.
In the interactive performance “Memorized,” participants are invited to write their favorite line from a poem with chalk on a blackboard. Before writing, each participant erases the previous person’s text from the board before replacing it with their own. A photograph is taken of each excerpt. These images will be uploaded as a slideshow on flickr and vimeo, creating a meta-poem online.
Whew, that should be most of it. Please carpool or ride your bike if you can and see you Saturday!
