Tsungwei Moo

473 neighbors want From macro to micro on Muni in San Francisco.

Proposal
HI, hi, hi” is my response to Diane di Prima’s poem. “HI, hi, hi” is the message delivered by life to a boy on his bike, just beginning life’s journey. My art, like poetry, celebrates life in the sudden ash of the essential. When colors, gesture, details, emotions are crystalized into a new experience. The poetry of San Francisco is sung in every face, every language, of locals, immigrants, visitors. I have been interpreting this poetry, sketching, painting, exploring San Francisco through my art since I first arrived here from my native Taiwan ten years ago. I will share my unique view of San Francisco, with all of its diverse people and scenery, joys and challenges, so that one can “see and feel” the selected poems regardless of one’s language or cultural background. As a recently naturalized U.S. citizen, I know how it feels to live in two worlds. I will bring this sensibility to “Art of Poetry.” I will bring together the worlds of word and sight. Just as all of us, each day, are brought together on Muni.

I was in a class w/ Moo and her work was always beautiful and fresh. I think she'd be perfect for this MUNI project so we could all share her great art work.
