Colloquy and clay organisms enmeshed with wire moss, resting on wood
Lighthouse Journal is a collaboration between Poet & Art-Science Scholar Hannah Star Rogers and Mixed Media Sculptor and Installation Artist Steffany Suze Boucher. The Lighthouse Journal poem and sculptures coalesce into digital form through the collaborative process of responding to one another’s work resulting in visual and poetic dialogue.
The Lighthouse Journal is a poetic biosphere: scientific samples and artistically representational organisms & text illuminated by textual light, dropped into undulating subconscious waters and solidified in moss, wires and white clay mud.
