|Abstract||Phenomenologist Eugène Minkowski in his work, Vers une Cosmologie, contends that the essence of life is “a feeling of participation in a flowing onward” and he develops the auditory metaphor, retentir, reverberation, to epitomize sound in space and time. Minkowski makes reference to a world reverberating to the most profound depths of its being, through contact with penetrating deep waves, that are both sonorous and silent. (See Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space, p. xvi). In this video, Nissopoesis: Waiting in Waves of the Sonorous and Silent, I interweave soundscapes and visual imagery to depict islandness beyond cartographical dimensions as the embodiment of somatic/affective and imaginative encounters. My intention is to propel the viewer into a temporary suspension of temporal and auditory space by creating lyrical, visual poetry through nissopoesis as poetic inquiry.|
