I chose Taylor Mali's spoken word poem "Totally, like, whatever, you know?" for my project. Because my choice is a spoken word poem, the emphasis is on the language, pacing, and emphasis of various phrases. so the animation of my speech is relatively simple, using color and size to highlight words, and pacing to emphasize phrases. I chose to use a bright green color palette because green symbolizes growth and energy, while the brighter shades of green evoke a sense of lightheartedness and whimsy.
