hindSIGHT #10Welcome to hindSIGHT #10Visual Poetry. It may be easier to say what it is not rather than what it is. Instead of trying to define the genre, however, I thought I'd present here a few collages (from the group archives) that are, as far as I can tell, visual poetry even though the artists probably did not think to call their work that.There is a journal entry HERE about a book and an article on visual poetry. Writing To Be Seen edited by Bob Gumman and Crag Hill, 2001, is another book about visual poetry. Other journal entries with visual poetry resources are HERE and HERE and HERE.unmadeby object000K from Use Thursday wipby object000Quote Meby Liz Cohn
criteriaWay back months ago, some work was done on describing criteria for collages being considered for The Art Of Collage folders. Keep in mind that the list below reflects the thinking and words of several people and we borrowed liberally from other groups here on dA. A list like this can never be complete or exact but I think it provides a general idea about the considerations given collages coming into the group. Some of the qualities we look for in collage art include:strong visual impact – color, composition, content unique, imaginative visual solutions an underlying conceptual or visual framework. intentionality (even if it’s random, it has to be intentional) Some of the things we generally avoid:scrapbooking or journaling that does not have a strong conceptual quality as well pretty or decorative work that lacks a conceptual framework immature, naïve or superficial work work that is computer generated (for example, work made solely by a photo mo
Observations about the group. Part TwoRecently I’ve been thinking about the Featured folder. What do I want to see there? What does anyone want to see there? How can we use it to showcase collage work? Am I making too big of a deal out of this? To explain the difference between the Traditional and Featured folders, I recently wrote that when I look at a piece in the Featured folder I want to be able to say to myself, “Whoa Momma (or Daddy, as you prefer) now there’s what you can do with collage.” For the Featured folder, having flawless composition and color is not enough if the piece does not push at some boundaries or solve a visual problem with unexpected elegance or take me in a deliciously edgy way out of my own comfort zone. Pieces in the Featured folder should captivate me with beautiful subtlety or eye-brow raising boldness. If a piece in the Featured folder has some kind of narrative, even an unknowable narrative, so much the better. One idea bei

And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas

Collection: Forgotten PastShare|AboutForgotten Pastschnotte is a German artist know for his photographs of rotting, decaying buildings and other dark themes. His camera explores architectural structures, but mostly to emphasize their coldness. The human figures in his photographs appear out of place, as if lost in filthy, forgotten, broken-down manufacturing machines, the cold, dark environments not built with humanity in mind. Looking through these images we can see the ghosts of the love that once inhabited his worlds and it is that love that still shines through his pictures. We are blown away by the beauty Schotte imbues to these deathly quiet scenes that are equally sad and uplifting.“Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream.”– Theodore Roosevelt
