Intertwined. Expanded video Poetry - Jose Larrosa (3:25 min)

 

In this video, I just wanted to show our creative environment while we are in college. With the narrative of a poem, I showcase a little glance at our group. As the camera pans through the halls and classrooms of our campus, viewers catch glimpses of our daily lives: animated discussions in common rooms, works in progress, and a document that shows all our efforts for this project

 

Experimental video poetry is a captivating fusion of visual art, poetry, and technology that pushes the boundaries of traditional artistic expression. This innovative form of artistic creation combines the evocative power of poetry with the visual storytelling capabilities of video, resulting in a unique and immersive experience for both creators and audiences. When exploring the practice of fine arts at the ATU (Art and Technology University) in Galway, it became evident that experimental video poetry could be a bridge between the realms of 2D and 3D art, offering a dynamic platform for artistic exploration and innovation.

 

I also chose experimental video poetry due to it serves us in bridging the gap between 2D and 3D art forms. This fusion of dimensions allows for a more immersive and interactive artistic experience that challenges viewers to reconsider their perceptions of space, time, and reality.

 

Some notable video poets include Akhenaton, Hedwig Gorski, Litsa Spathi, Gabriele Labanauskaite, Caterina Davinio, Gary Hill, Philadelpho Menezes, Billy Collins, Arnaldo Antunes, Mrigankasekhar Ganguly, Manish Gupta, Kalki Subramaniam, Tom Konyves, Gianni Toti, Richard Kostelanetz, Philippe Boisnard, and many others who have contributed significantly to the genre of video poetry. These artists have explored the fusion of poetry with visual elements in innovative ways, pushing the boundaries of traditional artistic expression and creating captivating works that engage audiences through a combination of language, imagery, and sound.

 

With all of that research, I just started recording people when I secretly saw a good opportunity to make a good shot. I deeply hope you like it as I’m glad about my result.
