REDDIT POETRY

This video project explores the theme of multiplicity by using the responses from a request I posted on the popular discussion website known as Reddit. I began by making a post under the Poetry subreddit page requesting people to collaborate and make a poem by responding to the previous line. To my surprise, the task was taken fairly seriously and the post resulted in a decent poem.

After collecting the responses, I realized that the format of Reddit allowed the responses to be organized in stanzas. Each of these stanzas was separated to emphasize the fact that this is a poem. Each line of the poem is shown accompanied with one other line at a time to give a visual indication of the relationship between the two people as the poem was being constructed. The end of the video reveals the names and locations of a majority of the individuals who participated to show just how far my single post reached.
