A face poem

A poem face

Poem a face

Face a poem
The correct title is Un Poème, which dA's title field did not permit.

Inspired by un poème by Hanan :iconpartiallyhere:

The image above the text is Hanan's and is used by her kind permission.

We published Unlike Things Must Meet in early 2011. Our continuing collaboration is A brave unbodied scheme.

thank you, Hanan! i felt the same, it's such a strong image - it seemed good not to confront it directly but to use some playfulness.

i was wondering if it would work in any other language - do nouns turn into adjectives in French without fuss as in English? so that one could say "un visage poeme" for example?

well, not in the same way. here, in your example, it works beautifully. but not in the english meaning: "a face poem" it means more: "a face that is a poem" witch is as lovely said like this.

maybe a "real" french friend can correct me if i'm wrong :aww:

So where the two last permutations not matching?

Right, in this game - at least as I play it - one gets to drop permutations that seem less strong. Could work the other way too... one just chooses.

Cool exploration/deconstruction of language joined with a visual image.
