Dana Guth

Three collages with text
from William Carlos Williams’ “Paterson”







Source & Method

These are analog cut + paste collages. The source text was taken from William Carlos William’s long poem Paterson, originally published in separate books from 1946-1958. I like taking pieces of the poem(s) out of context and seeing what these fragments can spark visually.
