Summer, 2011, 2012: I took up an “artist’s residency” in my yard, from early morning till the sun got too hot, listening to and reading that space, imagining and inscribing its spatial and ideological relations to other systems, sketching its geographies.
Of such “Yard Work” in the poetry of Jack Collom, Hoa Nguyen (and myself), Jonathan Skinner, in a post of the same name on his Ecopoetics blog at Jacket2, teases out some ideas regarding the “eco” and the “domestic.”
Summer, 2013, 2014: The Yard Work continues. A chapbook, Picturing Everything Closer Visible, is published with Projective Industries.
More notebooks are filled.
