#VHERBAGE !! tomorrow (tue) at 11 am PST

2014 03 03 Call Any Vegetable

Tomorrow at 11 am at #UBCO in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada: CRWR 260 students perform the real-time composition of the Twitter-poem #vherbage.

Our themes as always: art and science collaboration, plant consciousness as an idea that challenges accepted notions of learning and knowing, innovations in writing.

Join in – we would love input from the wider world into this publicly-written poem. Find us at #vherbage on Twitter or on the public screencast – tomorrow, 11 am for about 20-30 minutes. Or just watch the tweets roll in here.

Text generated during the performance will be the basis of the final poem that you will be able to find at the digital poetry website vherbage.ok.ubc.ca when it is launched in late April.

And to give you a taste of the soundtrack that will back the live event, here’s Frank Zappa reminding us to Call Any Vegetable.

See you at the Fipke foyer if you’re on campus, otherwise see you online tomorrow!
