P.o.E.M.M. = Poetry for Excitable [Mobile] Media.


The P.o.E.M.M. Cycle is a series of interactive touch text-works about making sense of crazy talk & kid talk, the meanings of different shades of purple, the conundrums of being a Cherokee boy adopted by Anglos and raised in northern California mountain country, and the importance of calling a sundae a sundae.

All of the works in the P.o.E.M.M. cycle engage the question of how we talk to one another, how we locate ourselves in wider cultural geographies, how we authenticate ourselves against our own expectations and that of others, and how matters that are once seen as so vital—so essential—can later be regarded as contingent.

The cycle, when completed, will consist of ten interactive touchworks. Each piece appears in both large-scale versions suitable for gallery or festival exhibition, as well as mobile app versions for personal use. Additionally, all the works also include large-scale printworks (to be added on this site soon.) The mobile apps are produced in five successive versions; please see here for more information on that subject.
