Two Dots over a Vowel

Two Dots over a Vowel

Insanely expressive sound poetry and absurdly, arduously conceptual writing that asks us to reconsider what it means to read.

Read

Christian has written: book length poems where each chapter only uses one vowel (Eunoia) that not only still make sense, but rhyme in complicated ways and bring to the fore the specific characters of each of our vowels (‘u’: smutty), and; poetry using the intricate structure of crystals. Most absurdly impressive, he is currently working on the encoding of a poem within the DNA of a near-indestructible bacterium, (500 times more resistant to radiation than humans), to be passed down in it’s genetic code over billions of years !?
