weeimage: E G T Y O
The Italian visual poet marco giovenale invited me to join the collective vispo/image blog weeimage which is comprised of many very interesting concreators/writers. I don't plan to cross-post in the future, but since this is my first contribution, I'll post the image (which I created this morning and have entitled E G T Y O) here that I've contributed to weeimage here as well.
There's something interesting that happens with our eyes and brains when we see repeated or varied patterns. It must be a very old evolutionary adaptation. Rock Rock Rock Deer Rock Rock. Wait! Was that a deer? I don't think that the creatures with five eyestems found in the Burgess Shale would respond in quite this way to repeated images. Of course, from single celled organisms up to the trillion-celled concatenations that we are, we are all visual poetry in a way. Don't just read my lips. Read my cells. My DNA.
