I've been writing a poem every day. Here is day 156 (26 July 2017). An erasure of The New Colossus by Emma Lazarus, most famously known as the poem at the foot of the Statue of Liberty. I wanted to try making a video to really showcase the erasure process after seeing some amazing concrete poetry in video form at the Getty Research Institute a couple of weeks ago.

I've been thinking about who we are as a nation, who we've believed ourselves to be, & who we've allowed ourselves to become.
