Qarrtsiluni has published a video and poem I made with Jo Hemmant and Michelle McGrane, titled Winding. It was a pure joy to work with Michelle and Jo, who are both talented artists and lovely people. Thanks again to Dana, Nathan, and Dave for creating the opportunity for collaboration.

I shower you both with jellybabies.
I’m amazed that you three are doing all of this in addition to your own blogs (not to mention lives). Loved reading about the process, and the poem was vibrant. The video was streaming very slowly. I only saw the beginning, river, trees, nature. I’ll try again at a different hour and hopefully have better luck.
yet another straight out of the park!!! i love your reading voice.. the three of you blended so well,, i could not even have imagined this was a gift from three minds… beautiful….
Amazing work. I was spellbound. So powerful and haunting…yet still beautiful. I loved reading about the process and how it all came together. You three make a terrific “one.” Excellent!
When shall we three meet again,
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
When the hurly-burly’s done,
When the battle’s lost and won.
That will be ere the set of sun.
michelle, that’s right! Thanks for reminding me, *smile.*
fantastic! poem and video. and like everyone else, i loved reading about the process. what a great collaboration.
Hi Christine –
I know you’ve been delving into the video/multimedia poetry concept.
I really liked “Winding”. Very well done — bravo to you, Michelle, and Jo… Good work!
I’ve just posted another of my animated graphics versions here: Swept Away
I’m in final production at the moment on another that uses video footage, as you do in your pieces.
