Yesterday at Salomon Arts in Tribeca Justin and Dave celebrated the closing of Ah Pook is Here: The Lost Art of William S. Burroughs and Malcolm McNeill with a reception and a presentation on found poetry in honor of Burroughs and his “cut-up method” of writing. As proponents of a new kind of ‘cut-up’ method of found poetry using internet search results, we were extremely excited to demonstrate our craft in the presence of work by the cut-up’s most famous proponent, William Burroughs. Participants were invited to view the exhibition and participate in a discussion about found poetry and the new art of using internet search results to create poems.
