~ Poet: Elena Chiesa ~

La Ferita (The Cut) by Elena Chiesa

Another brilliant animation by Elena Chiesa, this one with her own text.

Traversate by Elena Chiesa

Italian videoartist Elena Chiesa says about her videopoetry:

These animations are the result of many metamorphosis of frames worked one by one “melting the pixels” as oil paint. The sum of many transformations creates this fluid…

Listening to poetry, as to a mantra or a song, always brings our mind to create a flow of images, stimulating the creation of visions provoked in our mind and memory by the words or sounds. What I try to produce is this flow. My personal flow. In animation.

Though she sometimes animates others’ poems, she doesn’t credit anyone else for “Traversate,” so I’m assuming she’s the author of both the poem and the translation.
