Experimental video poetry from anthology “An Artist Abroad” | Portugal 2015 | 2 min 18 sec
Second poem from the video poetry anthology “An Artist Abroad” goes deeper into the geological and physical world around us. The poem was inspired by the Portuguese medieval heritage, with castles and stone walls surrounding almost every town and village. Traveling through Portugal gave the feeling of nostalgia and a thought about the past: what has happened over centuries and what have we forgot? Every moment in history brought us to where we are and Valerie questions if we have learned anything from the past or if we continue to make same mistakes. Life goes on and we still don’t listen.
