Last summer, Samiya Bashir and I sat down to talk about making a video for her book of poetry FIELD THEORIES (Nightboat Books, 2017). One video became six: one per month until the book's release. We worked with the incomparable movement artist keyon gaskin who appears in all six videos, and many generous people participated in Field Theories #4. The six videos will be woven together into one continuous film for the month of March.
I'm honored and proud to share Field Theories #6 (February):
Part 5 of 6 short videos that I'm making for Samiya Bashir's forthcoming book FIELD THEORIES. Poems by Samiya Bashir. Produced by Patuá Films and featuring the incomparable keyon gaskin.
From Poetry Press Week's website:
In a Poetry Press Week show, poets present their unpublished work in 10-12 minute, live, conceptual runway shows to an audience of publishers, press, and the general public. Poets present their work via “models” and other various media, staging, and effects to produce a three-dimensional experience of their poetry. Full poem text as it would potentially appear in print is projected alongside or in conjunction with the presentation.
