"This sequence of found poems was derived from an 8,867-word discussion of Derek Boswell's photography, which was published in The /temz/ Review. It marks the start of interdisciplinary dialogue between me and Boswell about the Anthropocene, with a focus on the pandemic, that will be installed at McIntosh Gallery (London, Ontario) in winter of 2022.
Derek Boswell is a social documentary photographer hailing from Southwestern Ontario. His work emphasizes the discord between human-built and natural environments, with a recent focus on how the ongoing global pandemic has shaped his local surroundings."
