An Interview With Jenson Leonard (AKA @CoryInTheAbyss) on Poetry and Memes
Things are different now. You hear this every single day, but seriously, we interact with the internet in a way that has changed the sophisticated processes of our brains. When we see text online, it just doesn't do the same thing for us that it used to. This has led to artists, poets, and designers to change the ways they create and present their work, to varying degrees of success. One of the most markedly profound products of this change are memes. It's laughable when you see a think piece on memes, but if the insanity of the year 2016 proved anything, it's that people receive information more effectively in different formats, and memes are a really good format to convey and receive information.
