  • CUT-UP:
method of Tristan Tzara
- Take a newspaper.
- Take a pair of scissors.
- Choose an article as long as you are planning to make your poem.
- Cut out the article.
- Then cut out each of the words that make up this article and put them in a bag.
- Shake it gently.
- Then take out the scraps one after the other in the order in which they left the bag.
- Copy conscientiously.
- The poem will be like you.
- And here are you a writer, infinitely original and endowed with a sensibility that is charming though beyond the understanding of the vulgar.

  • Fold-in is the technique of taking two sheets of linear text (with the same linespacing), folding each sheet in half vertically and combining with the other, then reading across the resulting page, such as in The Third Mind.
The ultimate cut-up machine is a digital version of the cut-up technique popularized in the late 50's and early 60's by William Burroughs. Building on the traditional approach of slicing up and re-aligning newspapers, the ultimate cut-up machine uses a digital interface to help you create new words and phrases from today's news. -->

  • (haevn't read) Naked Lunch (sometimes The Naked Lunch) is a novel by William S. Burroughs originally published in 1959. The book is structured as a series of loosely connected vignettes. Burroughs stated that the chapters are intended to be read in any order.[1] The reader follows the narration of junkie William Lee, who takes on various aliases, from the US to Mexico, eventually to Tangier and the dreamlike Interzone. The vignettes (which Burroughs called "routines") are drawn from Burroughs' own experience in these places, and his addiction to drugs (heroin, morphine, and while in Tangier, majoun (a strong marijuana confection) as well as a German opioid, brand name Eukodol, of which he wrote frequently).
(In 1991, David Cronenberg released a film of the same name based upon the novel and other Burroughs writings.)

"words on the surface at print itself, on the card mount, on the frame, and on the wall of the gallery; Thus the letters flow from left to right, both inside and outside the frame suggesting that this new form of reading will require an expanded approach to the activity and a new form of critical engagement."
