Poetic  Dialogue II

 

Words, too, could be cut from paper and installed in a way that they'd cast a shadow.  Cynthia's suggestion opened up closed doors in my thinking, opened up possibilities for our collaborative Poetic Dialogue project. 

 

Shadows became, or could become, signs of power.  Substance and shadow held something in common rather than stand opposite each other.  Both occupy positive space. 

 

Negative is daylight, neither body nor shadow.

Poetic Dialogue

 

Monarch butterflies, shadows, milkweed, words casting shadows, images cut from paper. 

 

All of these emerged as possibilities when Cynthia Weiss and I met to discuss our collaboration for the fourth phase of Poetic Dialogue, a visual and poetic art collaborative project curated by Beth Shadur. 

 

One question we had: is it possible to focus on butterflies in a way that is not toddler girl cute or clichéd?
