These two videos are the generative works for the physical Object Poems I exhibited in 2016.

They are experiments to see how, through juxtaposing digital objects in video, a historical narrative could be alternatively built.  I hoped for the digital objects employed to build a scaffolding of affinities that leave the viewer willing to reconsider their cultural preconceptions of the subjects which they encountered therein.

Baropoesis is about the history of Astronomy, from Galileo to Voyager.


Event Horizon is about each viewer's subjective experiences with how they see their neighbors.
