Submersible Thoughts is an installation of poetry and anagrams written in response to the global crises of the past year. Part of a larger body of work, these works were created as part of a weekly ritual that looked both inward and outward at this period of uncertainty. Non-tangible thoughts are re-imagined as submersible objects that can be pulled from consciousness and selectively drowned out. This process, a type of coping mechanism, explores ways to adapt and build new forms of concrete poetry for forward progress.
