Project info

Comics poetry is a form of poetry that uses the syntax of comics (images, panels, speech balloons, etc.) as well as words. "Regarding Th.at" will consist of a cycle of comics poems about Vienna, an investigation of the city in comics-poem form. I plan a diaristic or documentary approach, but with the typical rules of such genres discarded in favor of the possibilities of poetry to alter narrative and those of drawing to push the imagery into the realm of the suggestive and imaginary.

The work – drawn and painted images, transformed and arranged with programs written by the artist - will be posted on a website at the domain regardingth.at.
