These postcard poems arose from the discovery of my deceased father’s large collection of vintage travel postcards. At about the same period, I happened upon (largely by accident) ways in which small fragments from a copy of Marcel Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past (shredded for another project that I was working on) could be provocatively placed directly on the postcards, glued into the image.
A book of visual poems from this series was recently published, Seeking Frozen Sound (Tofu Ink Art Press, 2023)
