I’m currently showing “Dark Waters,” the finished piece and preparatory materials, at ISM-Chicago as part of the exhibition, “Everything In Place: Sketches, Journals, Preparations.” I love talking about process. If you do too, join me! I’ll be reading “Dark Waters” and talking about both the poem and the visual work and how they came about. The poem first appeared in Dream of Water, published by the Poetry Society of America in 2008 as part of the PSA National Chapbook Fellowship series. Included in my little corner of the exhibition are the finished “Dark Waters” pieces (it’s a 9-piece series), the chapbook, an artist book I prepared before making the 9-piece series, copies of the unadulterated photographs, and notes and notebooks concerning the series.
