New ideas, new perspectives, new ways of living can add vitality to existence; when we embark upon new adventures it reminds us that we are alive. . . and that life does not have to be squandered in drudgery. I try to do something new each day.
As such, I conceived poetry from a new perspective. How else can we express poetry, if we don’t use the written or spoken word? Motion picture. I imagined that I could use video as poetry, rather than words, allow the images to express and convey meaning. I felt this added a new level of sensation and ambience to poetry. Suddenly, poetry is alive. It is in motion, new senses are involved, for a fuller experience of meaning.
