Photos were hidden in books by the artist and by staff and users of the library, making associations between the images and titles.

The titles of the books chosen were then used to make poems in a creative writing workshop


below - two poems by participants at the workshop and the images that were hidden.

learning to swim in a drought


Afloat on the deep, heavy water

a play of light reflects islands on his pale blue eyes.


Down river

the tide turns the tiller of turbulent waters.

nightmares and dreamscapes


The sea, the sea, the darkening sea.

Fighting the current

in a glass cage of stars.


Waves whispering on the water

the tangled destiny of the visible world

twisted, lost.


We didn’t mean to go to sea

the point of no return.
