In HashtagPoetry# Clive Birnie explores the hidden poetry of Twitter. Taking screen grabs of random collations of three or four tweets on an iPhone screen he then redacts and erases them using photo editing apps before applying his distinctive patterns of coloured dots inspired by the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.

The resulting poem-fragments were originally posted to Instagram and are now collated here together with new work. Clive seeks to test the limitations of the process to create a body of micro-poems that have a distinctive visual feel; are enigmatic and entertaining, have a vein of black humour and feature the occasional zombie or cake eating killer goat.
