A poem really for all year.
Poet David Perez’ production of my poem “Lost Sonnet” appears below. I love how the image and text create a silent reading in a completely different register.
Perhaps because we are so used to having image enhanced by sound, or vice versa, in video format, the lack of audio initially feels like something is wrong, but then the silence accrues and the double visual–text and image–creates something quite new. Or so it seems to me.
Check out the rest of the videos David has produced at A Few Light Poems.
August 5, 7-11pm. South First Fridays Art Walk & Street Market. San Jose Downtown Association features “A Few Light Poems,” an outdoor public display of poetry videos produced by David Perez, including my poem, “Lost Sonnet.” Woo-hoo!
Look for them after dark at the corner of First Street and San Salvador.
