In the past I’ve used lines to connect the words for my poems, hoping the viewer would read them in the order I intended. I’ve been less controlling in this project. The order of the words is less important than the overall image they suggest. This also leaves more room for the reader to create their own interpretation. This is one of my favorite parts of creating art, to find out that other people see things that I hadn’t intended at all.
