Zata Kitowski’s Cut-Up Experiment VIII poem and poetryfilm used for a Poetry School course

Cut-Up Experiment VIII

I am delighted that my triptych cut-up poem Cut-Up Experiment VIII: Timers Run On and the associated poetryfilm of the same title will be used for a creative writing course run by The Poetry School. The course is called Fragments: From the Thought to the Page and it is run by Kathryn Maris.

“In this genre-bending course, you will look at poets, fiction writers, philosophers and psychoanalysts who think and write in fragments, use modes of interruption or whose work simply survives in fragment form. Fortnightly reading and writing assignments will aim to broaden your ideas of what is and isn’t a poem, demonstrate the value of omission and the unstated, and suggest new ways of observing yourself and the world, and of communicating those observations. The course will include texts by Sappho, Lydia Davis, Kimiko Hahn, Simone Weil, Adam Phillips, Wallace Stevens, Theodor Adorno, Gertrude Stein, Sam Riviere, Nuar Alsadir, Simon Smith, Anne Carson and others.”

“Cut-Up Experiment VIII” by Malgorzata Kitowski selected for the Stanford Code Poetry Festival

I was delighted to hear that my poem and corresponding PoetryFilm “Cut-Up Experiment VIII” was a finalist in the Stanford Code Poetry Festival.

An Oulipo poem employing anagrams and numerology is turned into a triptych cut-up. Each segment contains the same 166 words jigsawed in a different order. The film explores perceptions of meaning through seeing and hearing: in the first section, the words are both seen and heard; in the second section the words are heard and not seen; in the third section, the words are seen and not heard.

The event was sponsored by the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages at Stanford University.
