    Hand bound book, laser printed text laid out in InDesign, screen printed cover, images are gouache on tracing paper, hand cut and glued 8 inches by 12 inches closed, 2014 For this pop-up artist book entitled This Quickening I was most concerned with visually externalizing an energy that I feel inside of me always: a constant sense of internal convection that could be defined as an abstract awareness of personal potential. I selected 3 poems that help define this energy ("The Wild Iris" by Louise Gluck, "Scented Herbage of My Breast" by Walt Whitman, and "Progress" by Rainer Maria Rilke) and paired them with abstract collaged forms that are activated by pop-up paper mechanics. Each poem is typeset simply, and appears on it's own spread before each image. The form, movement, and color of the images serves to further express this energy beyond the language of the poetry. The pop-up images are intended to be visual metaphors for my own experience as articulated by the poetry. These moving forms also add a gestural nonverbal layer of communication that offers a fullness of expression beyond that achievable with words, like a dancer expressing a feeling through the movement of their body.

              Heres's a virtual movie of the great Walt Whitman reading another of his extraordinary philosophical poems ""Europe " from Song of Myself" first published in 1855 edition of his lifelong masterpiece of Philosophical thoughts and poems "Leaves of Grass". TWhen Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd is an elegy written by Walt Whitman shortly after the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. Admired as one of Whitman's greatest poems, "Lilacs" has influenced many other works in literature and the arts. The other poems in Leaves of Grass Book XXII -- "O Captain! My Captain!", "Hush'd Be the Camps To-Day", and the brief "This Dust Was Once the Man" -- also refer to Lincoln's death..The second line of the poem "And the great star early droop'd ..." establishes the allusion to Lincoln. The blooming of the lilacs in April, the same month in which Lincoln was assassinated, serves as Whitman's yearly reminder of Lincoln's death. This star is historically the planet Venus, which was low in the sky at the time Whitman wrote his poem WALT WHITMAN'S mission differed from that of other poets. The expression of lyrical beauty was not his aim, for his poetry lacks the background of legend, myth, euphemism or rhyme. He made no attempt to clarify ideas, but sought to bring the reader into the atmosphere of thought, leaving him there to pursue his own flight. He dissected the mind of his race with the delicate fingers of a surgeon of souls. Fearlessly he attacked the cancerous growth of materialism, the worship of false idols, the superstitions of the churches, the separative tendency of creeds and sects, the despairing hold of the people on departed models of obedience and compulsion. He visioned the future in terms of solidarity, and it was to these prophetic years that he sang his songs. He penned his words for future minds and dedicated them to the Culminating Man, to the new Empire of Spiritual Manhood, built upon the foundation of Universal Brotherhood, without distinction of race, creed, caste or color. Walt Whitman's poetry is a declaration of the principles which he felt would revolutionize the world if they were accepted and put into practice Walt Whitman (1819-1892 was born in Long Island, New York, the son of a Quaker carpenter. Whitman's mother was descended from Dutch farmers. In Whitman's childhood there were slaves employed on the farm. Whitman was early on filled with a love of nature.

I I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear, Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong, The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam, The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work, The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck, The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands, The wood-cutter's song, the ploughboy's on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown, The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing, Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else, The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly, Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
