Video poetry is generally described a combination of poetry and image in video form, across genres, inter-spliced, cross-disciplinary. A videopoem is a transliteration. Text is translated from one script into another, from page-oriented into 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.
My videopoems, however, are not transliterations of poems. Rather, I do 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 (poetic, artistic, filmic, kinetic) approaches to the same subject.
