Poetry & Spoken Word

A series of Artist written pieces exploring the potential of text and voice to enhance, convey meaning, and expand the experiential narrative of the Artist's screen based works. The poetry forms of ekphrasis, anaphora, and free form phonaesthetics are employed  within the current video and moving image body of work. 

Memoria
Sorrow standing dark /
In rooted rhythm's measure /
Circle, sound, and eye, remark /
A votive veil descending /
To stipple the opened earth


Before A Truth
before a cloud      became a stream

before a river        became a sea

before a wave       became a sound

before a song       became unsung

before a voice      became unheard

before a stone     became a mark

before a truth      became untold

This Dark Water
Shadows arrive /

Splendour cedes /

To a fire above /

Upon this dark water /        

Shadows remain /
