Artistic Work or Expression
In this work, I attempt to document the creative process as it relates to itself: the inspiration and the interpretation changing each other. Poetry expresses a relation of the self to the world, and so it is both outlet and introspection. Being fascinated by this connection of inner and external, I hope this commentary and creation project will show the interdependency of the two. Poetry is a unique process; it is necessarily vulnerable and honest, connecting the writer and reader to the external world in a way that prose would find difficult to articulate.
