Soliton - From artist's book to "moving image"

This is the second video in which I take words and images
from the pages of my artist's book and create "moving images."

About this on-going project:

This avant-garde series of illustrated books and printed media,
combining poetry and imagery, is inspired by Futurist artist's books
from the early 1900s.  Creating "moving images" from the pages
of my original artist's books allows exploration of the sonic values
of vowels and voice through the use of modern technology.

Words-Image-Sounds become new forms of "ZAUM."

There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.

52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textiles: Week 9

Vintage Velvet, Embroidery & Silkscreens This week's book See Us is about bringing to light that which has been in the dark.
See Us,  is also the title of the main poem in the book.  I silkscreened the poem on the textile page.  When the text was dry, I hand embroidered glass beads to the page.
To further the motif of "see us" I printed many of the images with a pale ink on the dark velvet.  This created haunting, ghost-like imagery. The finished book: The poetic interweaving of rare African textiles, modern fibers, original imagery, and poetry.
