Hydrologic Sestina, 2018
hydrologic sestina Video poem by Libby Mislan and Yo-E Ryou 2min 46sec, single channel video, stereo audio
"hydrologic sestina" was inspired by a rainy walk on 5th avenue in sunset park, brooklyn, on the night of the mid-term elections in late 2018.
contrasting mundane moments of everyday life in this primarily latinx community with the unfolding high stakes political activity, the poem is textured by weather patterns that remind us to look through a macro lens and be critical about human power-hoarding.
