Visual Poetry by Mara P. Hernandez
I aim to make the eyes feel, not using the letters as a simple medium, but as the significance. Seeking to dismember, reassemble, subsume, dislocate the letters of the word to regain their individual identity without losing sight of the meaning of the whole…
Placing the words on the tightrope, unbalancing and moving its gravitational point to enable us to see the center of their peripheries; its nature as stroke, rather than as point and long before as meaning. Using layers, visual elements, colors, textures to make a letter, words and thoughts to speak, feel, and vibrate by themself; intertwined to form a kind of meta-language that operates in a dissimilar way.
