The Vispo Bible on Display at U of O

photo by Claire Farley
as part of a graduate course given by Professor Robert Stacey. PhD student, publisher, poet and dear friend, Claire Farley interviewed me for the presentation and lovingly displayed my work as part of an exhibit on visual and concrete poetry at the university.

the conversation was fascinating and fun. i'm glad to see that students are being introduced to visual/concrete poetry. when i first heard of such, i was amazed. the possibilities are endless.

thanks to Claire for this great photo, for the wonderful display and for choosing my work as her subject.

i'm now working on the Book of  Leviticus, the third book in the Old Testament. I've finished Genesis, Exodus in the Old Testament, Revelation and Jude in the New. onward!

The Vispo Bible: Book of Revelation

the Book of Revelation in the New Testament has 22 chapters. I worked on Revelation from March to May, 2016. The Book is full of colour, texture, beasts, chaos, disaster and symmetry through numbers, particularly even numbers. These visual poetry pieces, which contain all the text from each chapter are attempts to render the above elements.

Note that the numbers in Revelation also have to do with the Golden Sequence of Phi, according to some mathematicians. This sequence appears in nature in nautilus  shells, sunflowers, peacocks tails and other phenomena of nature. These visual poems attempt to articulate similar shapes, using layering of even numbers of the text to recreate them. The image below is Revelation, Chapter 3.
