Visible Poetry Project (USA)
December -2017 - April 2018
The Visible Poetry Project - VPP (USA) was founded in 2017 with the goal of bringing together a collective of filmmakers to create a series of videos that present poems as short films. Drawing from works created by renowned poets, including Neil Gaiman and Tato Laviera, as well as emerging poets, the Visible Poetry Project strives to make poetry accessible, exploring how we can recreate and experience poems through the medium of film.
Throughout the month of April 2018 - National Poetry Month - VPP release one visual poem each day. An exercise in translation and a reclamation of both poetic and film discourses, the resulting thirty videos explore how we read, interpret, visualize, and hear poetry.
I choose a poem from the American poetJennifer Tonge. Since December I am working on a video for to visualize the poem of her.
However I see the project as collaboration project and therefore I stand in regulary contact with Jennifer Tonge about the developed of the video. The video willbe relased in the month of April 2018
