Behind the brush 2006, mirror and cut paper, 35 x 35 x 4 inches 

The poem obscures itself in order to force the reader to move around the sculpture in order to activate the act of
reading by framing unorthodox ways to read the text. The form, actions required to read, and the content of the 
poem aim to all inform each other. 

This text reads: 

behind the brush  we could not have seen one

another  then was only sky

we had to leave  wondering

among other things  where

birds came from  where birds go to

camouflaged by our leaving

thoughts  we saw only ourselves

alone  envying stones  we were saddened

by logs as arms cradled down

back  until our branches touched

by chance  there was never chance

we are trees  we have always been together
