Lex-Icon Blog Project Post 17: Afton Wilky

    1) Have been thinkingrethinkingthinkingrethinking and listening to the space of the page and the duration of an image within a book.
          a) Having to rethink work I'd thought of as extremely visual for a performance triggered this.  My mouth was not enough to make a visual intersections and static operate within the ear.  The realization that one mouth is not enough--that to read one voice-line of text is not, never really has been, and never really will be enough--
     2) I'm thinking again about Marina Abramovic and an interview-team which followed her while she was preparing a performance and performers to punish the sea.  The action of whipping the water and the distinctions she made between the bodies of the performers with and without the endurance to whip harder as they tired stays with me. It surfaces as another angle of the duration of an image-poem on the page.
    3) words and actions which feel their necessity
            a) cannot help themselves, must
            b) ere themselves
