Visual Sound Poems
Kala Art Institute, 2015
Visual Sound Poems (2011 to 2015) installed at a group show, Voices, at The Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, CA. Curated by Mayumi Hamanaka.
These pages were taken from five years of notebooks. I was inspired by composer Llorenç Barber's idea of visual music (not visual scores to be performed by instrumentalists, but visual notation meant to invoke sound inside the viewer). Using alphanumeric and punctuation marks as my palette, I made these handwritten pieces in an attempt to explore what visual sound poetry could be.
