Detritus: Poems from the Thames Foreshore Krissy Wilson is searching for textual artifacts in London’s river midden and assembling them into public, mosaic poems.
This is the process blog for my forthcoming Fulbright application, and it features a pique assiette mix of found objects, Victorian perspective on the Thames mudlarkers, folk art, tales of beachcombers worldwide, memoryware, and textual mosaic.
Mosaic artists, poets, Londoners, beachcombers, anthropologists, and scholars of all kinds: I’d like for you to check out my latest project and I’d like even better to collaborate with you.
Pages of variant tone and hue.
