"Canto Three: Circumstantial Evidence" (63K JPEG)

"Mystery cannot be put into words." - Joseph Cornell

This work in progress is my most recent and deals with issues of self, gender identification and intimacy using the concept of an archaeologicalexcavation of memory as a metaphorical structure. My starting point in eachpiece are lines of poetry by the Chilean Surrealist poet, Vicente Huidobro. Using the Surrealist poetic concept of the "cut up" as a model, I am creating a new poem from the selected fragments of Huidobro's work. Theimages in the series are numbered and when placed in order, will create a new poem which is autobiographical in nature. Images are output to 30" x 40" Rives BFK paper using an Iris inkjet printer.
