This collection of photographs is an experiment in the somatic engagement of texts. Using a variety of media—brick, concrete, fabric, chalk, embroidery floss, mat board, paint, digital photography, and photo-editing software—we explored the thresholds between poetry and images. We wrote, cut, stitched, painted, arranged, and smeared these texts on and with our bodies. We searched for their material dimensions. Through this process we experienced the shape, texture, flow, throb, scratch, and prick of poetic expression in space.
