“Lampyridae” at 57th Street Books

Finally! Here are some images from our current installation, Kelsey Hoff’s poem, Lampyridae, at 57th Street Books.

As we mentioned before, we are a little behind schedule, so you still have plenty of time to come see this fantastic window display (thanks to 57th Street Books for the thematic selection of books and surprises) in person. We’ll be sharing more documentation soon, but please enjoy these images in the meantime.

Cancer Baby Girl at Night

We were lucky to do our install on a cloudy morning and snag a few good photos, but we went back tonight to record our video of Ruby Figueroa’s piece, Cancer Baby Girl.

Here are a couple more images. Don’t miss your chance to visit the installation in person to read the whole poem and get the full experience!

Not pictured: the many people who stopped to pose in front of the camera as we recorded the video. Stay tuned for a blooper reel?

Another Night of “Lambent”

Given the full moon, it seemed like an appropriate time to photograph Lambent again. That’ll make sense to those of you who have read the poem, which will stay up at Women and Children First through the end of the month.

If you’re in Chicago, then go out and read Lambent, by Chicago writer Laura Knickelbine, under the full moon for yourself. Otherwise you’ll have to wait another week for us to archive it online.

“Lambent” at Women and Children First

We once again braved the cold to bring you some photos of our current installation, Laura Knickelbine’s poem, Lambent. As you can see, we are lucky to share the window with a fantastic selection of important books as well as an impressive list of upcoming events.

Even with this weather, you will be glad you took the time to go and read Lambent! February is a short month, so don’t wait… but don’t worry it is a Leap Year.

 

Another “Hug From a Large Man for a Long Time, part VI”

As promised, here are a few more photos of our current installation at the Chicago Hostel. The work is Amanda Beekhuizen’s prose poem, “A Hug From a Large Man for a Long Time, part VI” and will be up and running for a few more days. If you’re in Chicago, make sure to check it out before we have to move to our next installation.

We particularly like the floating effect that the hostel’s curtains lend our LED display, as if the poetry simply emanates from the window. From a distance though, it is just one of many LED signs fighting for one’s attention – it takes a closer look to distinguish it from the landscape of commerce and transportation.
