Thanks to a friend, I stumbled across this book, which I am currently reading. What the poet does is quite simple and awesome: he picks a page of the New York Times and blackens it with a permanent marker, eliminating the words he doesn't need. The result is something that is art, poetry, and a tinge of humour.
Quite an interesting concept of creation. More than creating, it's eliminating, negating.
I think I shall try this.
