During Uncertainty, a visual poem

I take photographs of words on artworks, museum displays, urban paraphernalia, sticker art and anything else that contains beautiful text or a suggestive combination of words.

Here are some of those photographs worked into a visual poem, titled During Uncertainty.

DURING UNCERTAINTY During a time before slowlife a small catastrophe, somewhere in the third word, does not consume itself They think this is history because urban fields have been broken beyond group occupation Go! or come to a naughty place on your side Scapegoating city lights were his eyes missing voyages that changed the picture-story Good parts, casual sparks, doth fade, we return then at so-called city of surprises Please follow ahead action to be continued embrace uncertainty

 

Like many people who studied art and humanities, I often catch my mind holding hands with the preoccupation of professional uncertainty. For no very good reason, since I have managed to get by in a number of countries without too much existential angst. Each job and each trip has been a joyful risk and successful experience -only a little bit scary.

While creating this piece I wondered more and more about refugees’ perception of travel, of emigration, of life change. I admit, with a mixture of guilt-shame and thankfulness, that despite the precariat ravaging culture and knowledge work,  I am in a random -and lucky- position of privilege. I hope that refugees too will witness their life journeys as an adventure with a happy ending.

Good luck (and resist the Precariat!)
