I wanted to show this work, because she works with textile and poetry.
“Nets arrived today and I have been drifting through it all day. I say “drifting” because it encourages a kind of drifting or floating attention that I associate with looking at cloud studies or with dreaming. It was strange, too, because I was just reading a book called *Veils,* a collaboration between Cixous and Derrida—and then your book of veils / nets arrived. I love the way some words/phrases seem to band together while others seem to meet or miss each other across vast distances (who knew the sonnets covered so much ground!). There is such a poignancy here—or maybe a plangency—that comes from your vision of the words as so tenuously connected. They seem to be on a long and uncertain journey. In your 21st century Shakespeare, the difficulty of communication—the possibility that souls never touch—is beautifully delineated. I have been focusing primarily on the bolded text, and yet the unbolded text is also there in my reading—sometimes as merely a sound blur, the rush in the mind of words that never find their way—articulate—into our voices. These words seem further away—in time and space—they seem to come from a dictionary almost bled white. But they exert a tremendous power—and while at first I thought they were quiet, later they seemed to be roaring. And those that arise in bold out of them almost seem to be escaping something.”
