The sunlight breathes, and
Angels float down in the wind.
I am reborn blue.
Once haunted by you,
I now bathe in the dawn mist.
In and out, repeat.
Winds of Change

Entitled “Winds of Change,” our piece is just that: an emblem of the cyclical nature of things. Begin by focusing your attention to the first visual element, an abstract cacophony of bright sunset colors.
Then, shift your eyes right to our first haiku, which was written in direct response to the emotions and imagery that the first image emits. Move downwards to our second visual element, which was itself created in direct response to the haiku above it.
Finally, end with our final haiku, constructed in direct response to the blue visual element before it. Thus, we present a cycle of our own production.

This spread was inspired by Jane’s Blue Jeans, a poem written by Dave Etter in May of 1979. While the poem is short and sweet, the writer’s admiration for Jane is evident. Using a combination of photography and digital collaging, we decided to illustrate this fictional “Jane” as a confident and carefree soul.
