A Map is a Poem

Flâneur With a Polaroid Land Camera

These images are selected from work I made during explorations in several cities. I wandered within a circle I drew on a map for a predetermined time period. The maps for each city were of equal scale and the areas covered had a two mile radius. The result was a pop-up exhibition on a gallery wall at a location chosen as the center of the circle.

 Organic poetry ... is a method of apperception, i.e., of recognizing what we perceive, and is based on an intuition of an order, a form beyond forms, in which forms partake, and of which man’s creative works are analogies, resemblances, natural allegories. Such a poetry is exploratory.  / Denise Levertov

 After all a poem is made up not of the things of which it speaks directly but of things which it cannot identify and yet yearns to know.  / William Carlos Williams
