Artist’s Statement: “Morning’s Fishing” continues my investigation of the use of text in pieces such as In Silence. The poem is from my collection Antípodas and here I explore a more playful relationship with the text weaving in and out of the images. I filmed it over two days in the Andalusian coastal village Punta Umbría where I found a wonderful cast of possible culprits, or witnesses… The sound is very important to me and here a feather on a sheet of paper became both a flapping flag and the sea on the beach. I don’t have any preconception of what a videopoem should be and enjoy the challenge of each poem and the visual language it suggests.
