your home, you're home was a tiny, immersive environment of poetry, music, video, sculpture, light, and scent. A 5'x7' structure with a 4'h entryway and 7' ceiling served as an enclosure and meditation space. This space was the primary reading area for a chapbook of original poetry, written for the occasion. The text was printed overtop pages of braille, and the structure itself was also sheathed in similar braille pages. A video-cycle of Polaroid images looped on a small television in the space, accompanied by an original short composition for piano. Additional found and created sculptural pieces completed the visual and olfactory experience. The piece was installed in the Bliss Hall Gallery, Youngstown, Ohio, in December of 2004. With the opening of the show, a limited-edition set of 7 chapbooks and DVD's was released, including the video and music from the installation and two short bonus videos. This piece concluded my autobiographical practice, but was my first full exploration of the possibilities of poetry within the context of art gallery and art installation.
