"I think we are almost inevitably going to see a high YouTube art form develop, the way the 17th century poet Basho took this game - 17 syllable poems - and took his attention as a poet and human being and turned it into what might be the most widely practiced form of poetry in the world today [haiku]," Hirshfield said.
What would this new form look like? Who is going to be the new media Basho? No one quite knows, Hirshfield admitted.
I submit that Andrew Filipone, Jr, creator of the video, "'Charlie Rose' by Samuel Beckett" (embedded below) may qualify as a maker of "high YouTube art." But I'm confident that there are dozens of others, too.
