Lex-Icon Blog Project Post 45 : Deborah Poe


“I toy with bookmaking, mixed media objects, and film because of the different dimensions pieces may take. Pointing to, challenging, undermining, and complicating meaning through bookmaking, mixed media objects, and film compels me. I want to shake up the inherent binary nature of language. Visual manifestations of work on the page allow me to, in the Derridian sense, play. For when the clairvoyant pauses, Lori Anderson Moseman sent me a collection of her poems entitled UTMOST brevity. In those poems were various actions of a clairvoyant, such as “when the clairvoyant pauses.” I wrote a poem that referenced the phrase, as well as a short fiction piece “City of Clairvoyance. Then I conjured this visual séance. The two pieces embodying the gloves were published in Fact-Simile Magazine. Pamela Paulsrud’s Touchstones, also in this photograph, were part of the annual Handmade/Homemade Exhibit (2012).”--  Deborah Poe
