Three Visual Poems

Lindsay Cahill



Crisis I

Each visual piece comes from a recently completed street-poetry project called find me here me out: a history of breaking which started in November, 2012. The find me project consists of one thousand Scrabble tile visual poems that present struggles with mental health and identity, and the failure of being able to communicate those issues publicly. The one thousand tiles have been taken, arranged, broken apart, and rearranged to create a subset of over fifty visual pieces that include the three selections shown in Switchback. This summer, the tiles will be dispersed and hidden randomly in public places like cafés, bookstores, parks, and bus stations across the Greater Toronto Area for anyone to take and interpret on their own.
