After Impact opening talk at White Box Gallery

  After Impact  is a visual poetry display on at White Box @ Fringe HQ until May 16 2021. Below is the video of my launch talk/poetry reading. After Impact  is a poem printed on organza fabric hung above an oscillating fan so that the ripples mimic dizziness and create a sense of unease. Many thanks to Fringe HQ and Katrina for giving me the opportunity to display my work in such a wonderful space. Thanks also to Jonas Goodwin for taping the presentation. My appreciation to my supervisors Jacob, Christine, and Lynley for their feedback and support on the development of my manuscript. And gratitude to Rushi, Megan, and Beth for helping along the way.
