For this project, we had to create a poetry machine. This required us to take the words from our City Poems project and somehow make an outline for strangers to create poems. There needed to be some sort of prompt on our part to curve the responses we got. I was pretty stumped at the start, since I was too broad and didn’t really understand the assignment very well. I finally decided to use my favorite medium in this project: makeup. I planned on making 5 completely different looks so as to allow for completely different responses. I did the makeup look and then went to a Starbucks or Panera and have strangers glue my printed words on to my face with lash glue. I took the pictures and read my face the way I interpreted it and then wrote out each poem.
