The following Wordles were generated over the life of the project. I use them here as a tool to highlight recurring themes and ideas that emerged as the project progressed. I gathered data through interviews and public gatherings. I kept a log of all of these keywords, which later I used in the final collective poetry writing event.
Words gathered in August 2011 during a community picnic where concerned citizens gathered to hear information regarding a mine in the penokee hills. The words were prompted by a question aimed to encouraging people to visualize themselves in a place that they cherish.
This wordle includes words from the previous wordle, as well as words generated from one-on-one interviews.
The final wordle compiles all words gathered plus words generated during the collective poetry writing event.
