Earlier this year, I was invited to take part in a project, responding to the painting / text work of artist Beth Ames Swartz. This work is itself a response to and incorporation of Du Fu poems (ancient Chinese poetry, see Wikipedia entry here for fast track knowledge) and I wrote two poems in response to her exhibited paintings, two procedural works using fragmentation techniques to harness the already fragmented qualities which are the result of the translation process.
I have also made an online digital work as part of my contribution. Dead and in this Painting can be viewed here.
