ILSSA Frameworks

personal projects

This collaborative contribution to the Impractical Labor in Service of the Speculative Arts (ILSSA) Frameworks project focused on the themes of:


HandworkRoutineCare, Community and Environment.

Utilizing single frames from my VR film Swing, poet David Yockel Jr. selected and hand-traced with carbon paper eleven drawings from the film, writing six-word, ekphrastic poems for each, which were then hand-lettered and carbon traced by me onto the same page.
