543 neighbors want Words Unfold on Muni in San Francisco.

Proposal
In a visual poem, visual language is the essence; and the verbal language functions as a complement to the image, where the verbal and iconic meaning converges in a mutual exploration.

This series of visual poems aims to capture the curiosity of the public and illustrate awareness of poetry in San Francisco.

Each piece explores a visual interpretation of a poem.  Digital and traditional techniques engage in layers where the visual elements of color and textures causes words to vibrate as a result giving them a new visual context.


Artist Biography
Mara Patricia Hernandez is a Mexican-American visual poet, digital artist, and designer; who creates a multifaceted visual poetry. In her work, she combines both digital and traditional techniques, her attention to the form of a letter or the shaping of a word places language and text at the tactile and metaphoric center of her work. Much of her visual poetry has been published and exhibited around the world. She currently lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.
