I will talk about 9X9 – a set of poems under constraint: As my response to the hyperlocal commission from Arts and Culture Exeter I made a set of 9 square visual poems, using the first 9 square numbers, and found images in square format as the initial constraints. Words were drawn from texts I encountered over the initial weeks of ‘lockdown’, and the images selected from my stack of collage materials. These were edited by erasure, translation, and recombination.
