Lex-Icon Blog Project Post 64: Amanda Deutch






Disco Sister Love Poem to the World

“Language itself can be a visual medium.  Often when writing, I look at individual letters and words as visual structures. When I think about visual poetry, I think about Apollinaire, da Levy and cinema.  I have been taking photographs for nearly as long as I have been writing poetry and recently began fusing the two mediums in a way that works symbiotically. I merge text with my photographs and the two ignite, each form illuminating the other to create something new.”—Amanda Deutch
