The Nature of Language
By Sacha Archer
The visual poems in The Nature of Language are part of a larger on-going project in which I engage directly with the landscape to co-operatively compose, or uncover poems. The poems included here consider the raw material, the stuff of life, as a ready-made poetics—a poetics before us. Growth and formation as writing; stilled, the glyph of body.
