Backyard mosaic by Devon Miller-Duggan
Just catching up on documenting some projects. The cake was for the last class of Intermediate Poetry. Quotation of course by William Carlos Williams. Gluten free. Chocolate.
Suzanne Vilmain’s opening on May first was a fantastic success. Some objects–clay, raku–in sand trays, along with poetry instructions.
Wildwood–can’t help but imagining this under water like a great reef.
Jetty–does it break space or time? Haunters of my childhood dreams.
The Concrete Ship–and what could be more haunting than this. Of course it sank. Why did they build it. And is this the name of the project?
Just back from Cape May with my friend Devon. We were experimenting with making sand poems. I am doing an ephemeral installation at the Betsy Hotel in Miami Beach in December.
These are Devon’s:
Creating the letters is much easier than I’d imagined–don’t need 3-D molds but rather can just “type” in sand. But this opens up a much more concrete element, shapes of letters, lines, making me realize I’ll probably compose as I go–more exciting but a bit scarier.
I have just refreshed the posts with final poems from the spring poetry class at SFCC. Above is a preview of a project I’m very excited about. I have written a short poem or stanza about the exact site of each post, and how they have been transformed in the campus landscape.
The gorgeous spilled ink designs–Japanese suminagashi–are from my artistic collaborator Isabel Winson-Sagan.
These will be posted over the summer. Expect an update!
This first image also seems to express spring in New Mexico–glad to discover the work of this artist, new to me.
Concrete poems in all senses of the word!
