Spatial poetics is coined off the Japanese saying, Koen Debut. The term is defined as the time when a mother’s debuts her newborn into the local community. This debut reflects the time, bloodlines, borders, history, myth and legend that have all incubating for this moment. This term epitomizes the heart of this showcase that challenges questions on human experience.
This year, Spatial Poetics IX will explore authenticity, stereotyping, and both the interior and exterior human experience. This will be done through creatively constructed animations, musical performances, video and more. This event will also include the premier of three new bodies of interdisciplinary artworks!
