The innovator project was a self-directed experimental time for seniors. We were given about 2 months of free time to work with and told to design and implement a project that could allow us to explore something we were interested in. Projects ranged from trial musical compositions to studies of film styles to the development of video games and more.
My innovator project focused on poetry and developing my own voice. I wanted to work on the way I present my ideas creatively, and because poetry is (arguably) my favorite litereary form, I decided to try working on my poetic skills. I wrote and performed 3 spoken word poems to develop my rhthym, alliteration, and public speaking skills. I also designed a book in Adobe InDesign, which you can view below. This book holds all of the poems I wrote during the Innovator project, with a variety of topics under my central theme: what it means to be a part of my generation. I wanted to sort of explore the instability of youth and the unsteadiness I notice in myself and my peers as the next generation, or Generation Z.
