about this project


Words in Place is collaborative project that was featured at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle, WA in Summer 2014.

By putting poems into public space, the project affirms that words not only reflect, but actually create the world around us.

There are several steps in this project:
1 – A poet chooses a public place.
2 – I interview the poet in the chosen place.
3 – The poet writes a poem in response to our conversation and the place.
4 – The poem is translated into a visual/verbal installation that lives (temporarily) in the place.

The nature of the project changes dramatically according to the poet, their choice of public space, and their poetics.
