Somewhere in the bottom of the rain (2011) by Steve Roggenbuck

What is poetry? What do words need to do to be considered poetry? How can we manage our stream of consciousness? What does it mean to have poetry in a video as opposed to a book, even a zine?

Last week we visited the New Museum Triennal, “Surround Audience”. In the basement and the corridor that leads to the bathroom you can find videos different videos playing on loop in their own individual screen. This is the work by Steve Roggenbuck, and it comes directly from youtube to the white walls of the New Museum. I don’t want to talk too much about it because I am afraid I might kill it, but I leave it here in the hopes that it generates as much feelings and questions as it did in my head.
