It's been a while since I last did one of these, but I just completed another round of SPARK - the web-based project that pairs artists of various kinds with writers across the country and around the globe. This round was SPARK 23.
Each round of the SPARK project starts when the visual artist provides a piece of work as an inspiration for their partnered writer – who in turn provides an inspirational piece of writing – typically fiction or poetry. Each partner then has ten days to respond in their chosen medium, and the results are shared on the web.
This round my SPARK partner was poet Anthony Valade.
My inspiration piece for Anthony was this:
You can read the poem Anthony created in response here.
Anthony shared a poem as an inspiration for me, and I created this photograph in response:
Anthony's inspiration poem From Nowhere (Comfort Zone) and my photo can be found together here.
This image shows a rainbow fragment that appeared over San Jose airport (those are the buildings you can see - the runway is hidden behind the earth bank). Photography is all about luck ...and being ready when that lucky moment happens!
As usual, ALL the work is amazing and fascinating: I highly recommend you to check it out and browse around.
