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.

I have a friend who would really like this. He's into Neural linguistic programming and he often says that phrasing of thoughts is sometimes as important as the thoughts themselves. Words carry different powers depending on how they are arranged.

That makes sense to me as a poet and it's very interesting to hear it from another perspective. Thank you!

You're welcome! You should check out the film Waking Life. This speech too ([link]). The guy he references at the beginning (Federico Garcia Lorca) was a famous Spanish poet, you should check out his work.

"And before you drift off, don't forget, which is to say, remember, because remembering is so much more a psychoactive activity than forgetting. Lorca, in that same poem, said that the iguana will bite those who do not dream, and as one realizes that one is a dream figure in another person's dream, that is self-awareness."

I posted your poem on his wall on Facebook (with credit of course :])
I'll let you know what he says!

Thanks very much for sharing the poem and for the tip about the movie! I know of Lorca and have read a little of his work, not much, I should go further into it. :handshake:
