CREATIVE WORDS

 

1. WORDS
 

When we think of the arts and technology, we must include “words” among them. In all art areas, words are making their presence felt in terms of text, verbal words, narratives, lyrics, and other forms. Words can be considered as individual art forms in themselves. When considered this way, we label them creative writing, poetry, stories, etc. Words are also easily combined with visual art and audio art (voice or speech).

The systematic approach offered in becoming proficient in using words in media production consists of:
- Finding and Collecting Word Concepts
- Generating Word Concepts
- Creating, Manipulating, and Processing Words

 
2. WORD SEARCHES

3. ONLINE WORD GENERATORS
  The essence of word art is in the generation of ideas around words. There are a number of websites which focus on the generation of text/words which can be used for a variety of creative and artistic purposes. Word generators can be used for brainstorming, getting ideas, modifying and honing concepts, or actually creating components to be used in the production itself.
