In “Selfie Poetics,” Andrew Durbin considers the recent rise of the selfie and poetics in the art world, rethinking how artist-poets self-image through language on the Internet. Against coherency, selfie poetics not only disrupt traditional notions of the poetic, they revise our definition of the self-portrait, too, reimagining our destabilized subjectivity as critically dependent on Unicode, social media, apps, and a circulating network of bots who constantly threaten to write our poems for us.
