A poetry film about SARS-CoV-2: oh little virions!
A man and a woman. A meeting and the complex feelings that flow from it.
This collaborative experimental film translates a poem about structure into uncertain and distorting structures of new media.
Three Part Meditation
Inspired by the Northwest rain and wind, captured on days that were reportedly "the most" something in local Seattle weather, this video poem aims to ease the viewer into a calmer mood by the end.
Lightwaves Soundwaves
A collection of wholesome ideas are inscribed on video images of Dwayne Jahn's original handmade abstract artworks. An original soundtrack by Oxford Improviser Lawrence Casserley using water sounds, rain sticks, and his signal processor instrument, accompanies the videopoem.
A woman, a mirror, and a reflection encounter one another in an experience of fragmentation and self-otherness.
Such Complexity/Air & Wood
This experimental music video inspired by Ezzat Nashashibi's new music composition "Luft und Holz II" creates a dialectical interplay between text, roving and randomized camera behaviors, and time dilation and compression. Underlying the technical aspects of its composition, the theme of leaving wild ecosystems to their own devices is driven home by Jack Cochran's erasure poem, which takes Peter Wohlleben's "The Secret Wisdom of Nature" as its source material.
An animated calligraphic haiku meditation on a theme of gray: Ink and water, and nuanced “color” variations carry the opposing concepts of subtle quiet beauty and relentless neutrality.

This showcase will be on loop in the Atrium Gallery at Jack Straw Cultural Center (4261 Roosevelt Way NE) Apr. 11–28 (Mon-Fri, 10am-5pm). Please call 206-634-0919 or email jsp@jackstraw.org ahead of time to schedule attendance.

Cadence Video Poetry Festival 2022 will be held both virtually and in-person. VIRTUAL, IN-PERSON, and HYBRID Festival Passes are available here!

Explorations and exploitations of sound—the sound of words, the sound of anxiety, the sound of abstraction. This showcase features works that bring ancient poetic traditions of musicality and rhythm to a contemporary foreground across Super 8 footage, paintings, performance, and animation. Some skim the surface of music video buoyancy, some are a discordant choreography of the senses, all use audio as integral to the experience of language.
