Cross-Genre Projects

works by Juliet San Nicolas

My purpose with the cross-genre piece is to visually represent the tone of Marianne Moore's poetry. All her poems have a strong calm about them, they also have a strong focus on the particulars that she sees in the world around her. And so I spent three hours reading her poems aloud, then wandered around my house, trying to see the world with her voice. After I took the pictures, I narrowed them down to a series of pairs. The pictures are paired together namely in contrast to each other, but also sometimes because of their similarity.

The writing students were asked to produce text works based on their examination of the assemblage box constructions of visual artist, Joseph Cornell. Likewise, the visual art students were asked to produce visual works based on their examination of the poetry of Marianne Moore.
