BROADSIDES: granite lover, I want to be That Man

August 26, 2008

"granite lover" body print & poem

For a 1996 erotic art show at Art City, I made a full size body print and beside it scrawled the text of my poem “granite lover.”  Subsequently, I turned the image into a broadside to be published in ARTLIFE Limited Editions.

The full text of this poem and the original post of this poem can be found here.

That Man poem & ARTLIFE broadside

That Man poem & ARTLIFE broadside

My poem “I Want to be That Man” showed up first as part of an installation for an Art City April Fools Show in 1995. In 1997 for an erotic art show at Art City, I applied the poem onto a shirt as well as copied the shirt then reproduced the poem in blue onto the copy of the shirt to make this broadside for ARTLIFE Limited Editions.

The full text of this poem as well as an mp3 can be found here.

(NOTE: when I originally posted these poems, I didn’t have a scanner–now that I do, I can post the ARTLIFE broadside along with the poems! Which I am busy doing!)

    Wonderful objects and both are great poems. I love hearing about different ways to integrate poetry into other arts and life in general.
