finding by erasing

July 6, 2017

If you’re interested in found poetry, here’s a project that is generating a lot of buzz: Erasing Infinite, in which poet Jenni B. Baker creates erasure poetry from David Foster Wallace’s 1079-page book Infinite Jest (Little, Brown, 1996), one page at a time.

Learn more by visiting the Erasing Infinite site, reading this article from PBSNewsHour, and liking the Erasing Infinite page on Facebook.

For another page-at-a-time project, see Moby-Dick in Pictures: One Drawing for Every Page by Matt Kish (Tin House, 2011).
