Art from the virtual scrapyard

(elkement. Last changed: 2016-10-25. Created: 2015-08-17. Tags: Art, Weird, Flarf. German Version.)

I don't know that art is. I am just reassembling weird snippets spit out by search engines and my spam folder. This is called 'Flarf' poetry.

The older articles here are antedating my 'serious' attempt at experimental internet poetry - published on my blog since 2012.

Actually, the Art category on this website is the only one I cannot tame: Theoretically I have an editorial policy of sorts - what to publish on the blog and what to publish here. But my weird so-called poetry is everywhere, creeping like suprafluid Helium.

Perhaps the 'unique selling proposition' of my poetry on subversiv.at is the even more pronounced meta and self-referential aspect: I create poetry from my own content, or even my older poetry. I will be done, when it does not change any more after infinite cycles.

Elkement's Poems - The Definitive List and Introducing: Poetry from Poetry (2015-05-25)
The Elkement is a Netizen and living in many places. Its most innovative poetry has actually seen the light of the virtual day elsewhere.... But we invent a new genre as we go: Poetry from lines of all existing poems at elkement's blog.

What Is Art?

In order to allow English readers a glimpse into my post adolescent postmodern gloomy stanzas I resort to Google Translate.

The Eerie Art of Spam Poetry

The Eerie Art of Spam Poetry (2014-02-02)
Spam poetry has long been underrated. I admit I have considered it something lesser - compared to the intriguing soothing voices of search terms.

The Early Days of Search Term Poetry

The Early Days of Search Term Poetry (2014-01-12)
The Elkement has published its first Search Term Poem on its blog on 12-12-12. The first weeks of living as a practicing search term poets were exciting, intense... and heart-wrenching at times. It designated itself as a leader of new cult, attracted new comrades quickly, and transcended the scope of its art to other items from the virtual scrapyard such as spam comments.

Facebook: A Social Network That Lends Itself to Fine Art (2014-01-05)
Intellectuals are scathing Facebook in error. This is not at all the preferred network of amateur food photographers, humblebragging spammers of personal success stories, or creators of uncalled for inspirational quotes.

Retrospection (2013-02-09)
