Abstractions...

We've now been given our second brief for the 'Word and Image' module (Curious incident is still on-going). Its to find a self contained piece of text and make a 'book' (or equivalent) of at least 12 pages. I looked at a few bits of poetry and had a go at quickly sketching out some ideas:

Prayers for the Imperfect by Henry Normal


Indian Prayer (starts "When I am dead, cry for me a little")


Invitus by W.E. Henley (one of my favourite poems of all time)


High Flight (an Airman's Ecstasy) by J.G. Magee


Have had a tutorial and the tutors suggested I follow up both the Indian prayer and Airman's Ecstasy with a bit more work - then pick one to work up into a final piece. Am quite looking forward to this ...

These look fascinating, Mithi. I do like the idea how the course makes you work through these projects and develop these... it's at those points that I wish I would have more time for art. I've been playing with some poetry myself, and am very intrigued by the ways words and images can work together. Will be watching :)
