Description

In March 2010 I sent a book of original drawings to the poet Douglas Blazek. He responded having read the handwritten title “AFTERIMAGES” as being “AFTER/MASES” and enquired as to my meaning of the word “MASES”.

He continued in his response to what might easily be read as insignificant marks on paper, yet his reaction seemed to suggest the absolute essence of what I had been trying to capture with

the drawings. Without knowing the title, Blazek went so far as to mention afterimages, specifically, within his text.

This version was published a year following the original book production. It documents the original book, drawings and Blazek’s corresponding text.
