Katherine McNamara, publisher-editor of Artist’s Proof Editions, created multidimensional treatments of two poems in Robert Schultz’s book, Ancestral Altars.
The “moving poem” of “Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Night” combines original photographs, appropriated images, sound effects, and audio of the poet reading his poem.
McNamara’s treatment of “Ancestral Altar, No. 7” features the gradual presentation of the pantoum’s recirculating lines as the sound of a hard rain intensifies, leading eventually to the image of Binh Danh’s leafprint to which the poem responds.
Both are included in the iBook and are available free on the APE website and below.
