73 Poems
Joan La Barbara, United States
73 Poems, 1994
Interactive installation
Selected by: Joel Chadabe
Joan La Barbara’s voice/electronic realizations of poems by Kenneth Goldsmith exist entirely in digital format, with the poems beautifully drawn so that a member of the public can select any poem by number and go directly to it, or just let the work play through. This is a beautiful example of interaction and the verbal communication of simple human feelings.
