Hyper-Poems Hyper-Poems Hyper-Poems

Brüggemann describes his epigrammatic HYPER-POEM as ‘slogans’ written as part of the greater body of his Text Pieces. These laconic texts use the kind of language we most often encounter in our immidate accelerated digital lives. Such set phrases have a semiotic character, like hazard symbols, that evokes learned responses.

The presentation of this language as a kind of foreshortened modern poetics offers a caustic perspective on that modernity, while the staccato rhythms of these sloganistic lines of poetry perform the relentlessness of newsfeed culture.
