THE LIFE POEMS, For We Are Curious Poetic Creatures

THE LIFE POEMS is an ongoing and evolving art experiment composed of a collection of original words, sights, sounds, and poems about life as reflections and explorations of life and reality.

It is an inquisition into the subjective experience of words, their original meaning, their interpretation, and their influence upon the interpreter. THE LIFE POEMS is also a study into how words can change shape and form from the perspective of the framework from which they are presented.

Each person’s perception and relationship to words and their manifested expression come through their own unique filter of life experiences and beliefs. They weave their own stories throughout what they hear and see to create whole new stories from the abstractions found within the artworks. Or in this case, the “poems about life.”

Interestingly enough, these stories are not the end of the story. The perception of art, language, and music can evolve further on a personal level.

The words, sounds, or visuals which might have meant one thing to an individual at one point may connect the dots in whole new and profound way after someone has a new understanding, perspective, belief, or defining moment in life.

Upcoming projects and collaborations associated or related to the experiment THE LIFE POEMS include COLOR HYMNS, HANG ME ON YOUR WALL, HEARTLUST, HIEROPHANIC HIEROGLIPHICS, HUNGER OF EVE, POETIC ARIOSOS, and POETIC ATOMS.
