Shipping Container Series: Hanjin, Maersk, Cosco

Infrastructure, Printmaking

Today was a busy time at the Bow & Arrow Press, where I was not only running a four-color broadside for a poetry reading at Emory University, but also running editions of my long-waiting shipping container project. I pulled three sets of prints for the series, and each will be signed in an edition of 27 when they’re dry:

Cosco-in-Warm-Grey-7

Cosco in Warm Grey 7

PostArtPoetry: “IHDRkXTPLTEttXX//”, a PNG poem

Internet Art, Linguistic Deconstruction

In honor of the Post-Art Poets (@postartpoets), whose motto is THE TIMELINE OF ART HISTORY MUST BE ABANDONED IN THE NAME OF PROGRESS, I have interpreted their logo as its own form of machine poetry, reproduced below in both full representation and as edited to retain all English text letters.
