Exploring the Linguistic Constraints and Joy of Found Poetry: A Conversation with Chloe Proctor on Twitter and Personal Experience with Beir Bua publisher, Michelle Moloney King. A youtube video summary.

As part of Beir Bua’s effort to use UX design principles and be more inclusive and well, handier, here is another summary of a visual/audio interview.

This Youtube video centers on the interesting concepts of ecopoetics and found poetry, both of which are demonstrated by the poet, Chloe Proctor. Ecopoetics is a poetic study of the environment around us and its impact on the written work of poets. Found poetry is a form of poetry which uses existing texts from other sources and pieces them together in an artistic manner. During this video, Chloe Proctor talks about her personal experiences with these poetic methods, the linguistic constraints she encounters, and how the joy of Twitter’s found poetry has shaped her written work.

This Youtube video brings together Chloe Proctor’s fascinating and diverse skillsets, as she discusses the lessons of Ecopoetics, insights into the power of language and constraints, and the fascinating concept of Twitter’s found poetry. Found poetry involves taking tweeted random words and repurposing them into some kind of poem, and this inspiring video brings together Proctor’s creative genius to discuss how language can be used both to compose and to constrain. She deep into the world of creativity and language and challenges the idea that there are linguistic constraints on creativity, arguing that the only limits on a person’s creative potential come from their thoughts and beliefs.

Proctor encourages viewers to break the bounds of language and think more freely and explore more deeply, using the power of their imagination to come up with innovative ideas. She also identifies the role of technology in pushing the boundaries of creativity ever further and believes that it is important to embrace the power of technology to allow for more creative thought processes. Proctor concludes that creativity is an important component of success and that we should not be limited by language constraints in pursuing our creative ambitions.

Creativity is an elusive concept, but one fundamental element of it is being able to think beyond the constraints of language.

Proctor discusses how Twitter found poetry is an insightful consideration of how linguistic constraints can both enhance and limit creativity. Proctor and Moloney King consider how the limits of Twitter’s 140-character message, as well as its hashtag structure, can shape the form and content of found poetry. This inspiring talk invites viewers to think beyond traditional ways of expression and explore the potential for creativity that exists even within restricted boundaries.

Social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are a part of many people’s daily lives. Unfortunately, there is a dark side to social media that can often be overlooked. The dark side of social media involves online bullying, platform addiction, privacy concerns, and lasting mental and physical health effects. In this Youtube video, the presenter will discuss the various negative aspects of social media and provide helpful tips on how to protect yourself from the dark side of social media. Education is key in order to stay safe online and limit the impact of social media on our mental, physical, and emotional health.

This Youtube video with Chloe Proctor and Michelle Moloney King, ‘Ecopoetics, linguistic constraints and the joy of Twitters found poetry’, explored the newfound creativity that writing poetry within the 140 character limit of Twitter created. Ecopoetics highlights the intimate relationship between our actions and the environment, and when combined with the Twitter character limit creates an inventive type of poetry that speaks of a smaller, simpler world. The use of Twitter to create these poetic works serves to show that there is joy in brevity, and that creativity can be found in even the most limited of spaces.
