internal difference, Where the Meanings Are
Left: Stairway from Ground Fl. Right: Ground Floor.
Left: Looking up stairway. Right: Second floor.
250 yards of cotton cheesecloth dotted with heat-transferred inkjet photographs stream down the two story oval staircase, only lit by entering sunlight. Texts lure visitors up the stairs where they encounter audio of Emily Dickinsons poetry read in contemporary voice. Simple elements combine to explore Dickinson's power and influence as an absent presence in her time and ours. [The title is taken from Dickinson's poem, "There's a certain Slant of light" - Capitalizations and punctuation, hers.]
Audio: Dickinson's work read by poet Barbara Henning.
