Ancient Breathing / Lewty, Simon., 1991

 Item
Identifier: CC-07655-7800
Scope and Contents

Commissioned for "The Beauty In Breathing" exhibition. The images read from bottom to top, move from earth to air, and then back again as a metaphor for breathing. A landscape signifies breathing of earth and a mandrake root "screams" when pulled fro the earth. A balloon man adapted from a Chinese Taoist illiustration of psychic breathing, hovers over the sea in a place where air is "worth breathing." The scroll contains automatic writing done as Lewty focused on the rhythm of his own breathing. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

Anthropomorphiks / Fones, Robert., 1971

 Item
Identifier: CC-11395-11611
Scope and Contents Described as "being a collection of poems, drawings photograms & Logos." Each page presents a human-like figure representing a commercial product, e.g., the Michelin tire man. 'Anthropomophiks' are creatures of a collective imagination. One would have to look to The Doctrine of Signatures through the eyes of an Ad Man to see them for what they are. This is definitely not Pop Poetry. According to a bookseller, the sensitivity that imbues each object comes directly from the mind/heart of a young seer engaged in the unpopular activity of revealing our selves to ourselves. Clearly in the tradition of the French Surrealists and Dadaists and the Russian and Italian Futurists, Fones' poems and kollages make up a vision of pure contemporaneity in which the figures in the landscape are real people possessed by the idea of mechanization in a world that disallows the personal. As a first book of poems this is an unguarded achievement, one which promises much for the future of both writing...
