A selection of video poetry from the Cadence open call for entries in four categories: Adaptations/Ekphrasis (judged by Shawn Levy), Collaboration (judged by John Bresland), Video by Poets (judged by Sarah Minor), and Poetry by Video Artists (judged by Claudia Castro Luna). Judges within each of these categories will select a winning work that will be featured again at the closing screening on April 25.
Video poetry is language as light. As an art form, video poetry is lucid and liminal—on the threshold of the literary and the moving image. It articulates the poetic image visually, rather than metaphorically—it shifts words from page to screen, from ink to light. A video poem makes meaning that would not exist if text was without image, image without text. It is language-based video work or a video-based poem. Video poetry is a literary genre presented as visual media.
