Womannotated – The Night A Crow Must Go Away

A sample page from Crow Carriage, an annotated poetic horror novel set in a Victorian English seaside village.  This is the format of  the Crow Carriage book, a sonnet with an expansive annotation that tells a story in prose below (the same format as my book Flutter available at my website and Twist In Time).

The Night The Crow Must Go Away

You lie beneath a dozen nightmares.  Screams

careening down a crow-covered stair wake

you in the last second before the dream.

Item 08: Thresholds in Flux [Vol.02], by A Virtual Memory

This project is a document of self destruction and rebirth. The death of the self, of fear, of anger, of anxiety, of misery and how the weight of these things pushes one through transformation. Akin to a burning forest. Violent and destructive, consuming all life in its path and tearing down the old world but, in being a harbinger of death, it is also a giver of life. A new world is born from the ashes of the old. Sex is a background figure here but ever present; an undercurrent assuming many masks: a lover, a villain, a dealer, a scapegoat, a gravedigger, a mother, a companion, a friend. The album is intended to be understood in three acts: Act I (“The Itch”, tracks 01-06), Act II (“The Drift”, tracks 07-09), Act III (“The Dance, tracks 10-14). Each of these acts documents the three separate phases of death, transformation, and rebirth. The artwork reflects these themes in the juxtaposition between the eroding of how the death of self has been expressed in mythology and lore (how we wish things to be, how we wish to frame our desperate situation) and the decay of abandoned places (the reality of death; the cold apathy of it).

Stacked Skeletons in Church Graveyard by Elizabeth Honer (Grrlrighter)

‘Stacked Skeletons in Church Graveyard’ is based on one of Honer’s dreams. She recreated it in Tilt Brush, a Virtual Reality drawing and sculpting application that allows for 3D world building, artworks and multi-media narratives to be built & experienced in a 3D space. This work speaks to the importance of recognizing the influence of past generations. Having had several anxiety and fear-fueled dreams in a series about death during that period of time, Honer noted how this dream was strikingly different in tone. It was playful and serene.

The day I was Ꙩ\born/Ꙩ a terrible →sadness← descended upon the \earth/⃝.
