2009: Poem Book 2
Poem Book 2 is titled “Living Breathing”. Sometimes the sense of wonder that we are human and alive can be really powerful. This book was propelled forward by this need for experiencing life.
When I created this book using the stamped letters, I didn’t write and then edit the words first. There was a sense of immediacy as I stamped out what came to mind without censoring my words. In all creative processes there is a need to edit and then there is also the need to not edit at times. The direct experience of following a train of thought can be really more important than a polished piece. For this book, I literally lived and breathed my way through it, without stopping.
