Decontextualized video comments become modern pieces of poetry.


Daniel says:

The idea is just to de-contextualize serious or crappy video comments, collecting them like in an isolated art gallery.

We also made a typographic presentation video.

Decontextualized video comments become modern pieces of poetry


  1. Yes, I know what the idea is, and I’ve heard the rationales and explanations for such things, but the result at best is always little more than a curiosity. Boredom is not an intrinsic quality of things, events, and concepts; it is created and resides in the eye of the beholder.


  2. I hear you, Buddy. But don’t you think Ape Lad could do one hell of a drawing of the Rabbit Guy’s predicament?

  3. That was like-I didn’t know you could-It makes me suffer every time I-What makes them think they can just-Bunch of crap.

  4. Mark, I’ve actually been toying with the idea for some time now: taking random comments (specifically some of the more inane ones on youtube) and illustrating them out of context. Maybe there’s a flickr group waiting to be born.

  5. Sometime garbage is just garbage. Or maybe I’m bias because I’ve never been a big fan of poetry.

  6. I think this idea has merit but the sentence about the rabbit is annoying me because it should be ‘then he’ not ‘than he’. Shouldn’t it?

  7. Mark,

    For my eye, Ape Lad could illustrate the phone book or a BB thread and knock me out.

    Wait a minute . . . illustrated BB thread comments . . . hmmm.
