Video poetry is described a combination of poetry and image in video form across genres, an inter-spliced, cross-disciplinary art. A videopoem is a hybrid. The poem inspires the film: text (as voice, subtitles, graphics) is combined with the cinematic. We get a 'verbal/visual' cluster, a complex, a nexus, a multiplicity composed of vectors that intersect. The videopoem casts moving images of poetry into a film stream in ways that enable it, itself, to become a visual poem.
Rather than present moving image sequences with voiceovers, I favour performance pieces composed of poetry, image, video, a mask &/or a painting or sculpture and dance. For me, all the components of a piece arise from a singular creative process that finds its expression in multiple approaches (poetic, artistic, filmic, kinetic) to the same subject.
