Emily Dashes

The Design Thinking Initiative and the Boutelle-Day Poetry Center at Smith College, my alma mater, are currently spearheading a Common Reassemble project using the works of Emily Dickinson.

To participate in the Emily Dashes project, members of the Smith community take a page or two of Dickinson’s poems and create a response to the work using whatever materials they see fit.

I have submitted two pages. Being more of a poet than a visual artist, I relied on erasure style with a bit of added decoration.

The pages will be displayed at the Poetry Center and may be shared on social media. At the conclusion of the project, they will be assembled and housed at the library as part of the Mortimer Rare Book collections.

What a fun and innovative way to leave a bit of myself “in residence” at Smith!
