Step by Step
A linear process of creating a poem on 35 hand-bound pages. Bolstered by a nuanced color gradation in blue. Blue progresses from light to dark like the stages of immersion in water, becoming deeper and more opaque.The blue pages are littered with words about the drowning of a man in a municipal swimming pool.Words like molecules floating in a pool of water on blue pages.
