“... poetry is not a luxury. It is a vital necessity of our existence. It forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change, first made into language, then into idea, then into more tangible action. Poetry is the way we help give name to the nameless so it can be thought.”
- Audre Lorde, 'Poetry is not a Luxury' 1985
n. “demonstrat[ing] the process of thought and simultaneity expressed in words - visible and/or audible - whose meaning is blended with, but not illustrated by the images and the soundtrack”
- Tom Konyves, 2011 'Videopoetry: A Manifesto'
