Poetry as Participation
How do you define Home? This is the taste + texture of mine.
These are the photos I take for me. Here is an invitation - Step inside.
the past is no sanctuary
time set fire to my ghosts
spoken memories I can’t see through
smoke kisses the wood with burns
is there safety in a spiral of feeling?
know where to see choice
in the soul’s evolution
all driven until desire is spent
Words offered by Nikita Pereira, Jenna Citrus, Marcus Gregory, + Anonymous.
All photographs are 35mm + 120mm film

The participants in this experiment allowed their imagination to process this visual space. They chose 5-10 words that described their emotional journey through this visual landscape + shared them with me. From this litany of chosen language I crafted a community poem, paired with these images, + released in the August 2019 newsletter.
