This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘On Floriography’ by Karen An-Hwei Lee.  “This poem explores the ancient practice of floriography, the coded language of flowers, as a way to express human love through the use of fragrance, colors, and vivid symbolism. By elucidating the phenomenon of florescence alongside the art of floral arrangement, the poem encourages readers to extract poetry and beauty out of a dystopic world”, explained Lee. She holds an MFA from Brown University and a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. A poet, novelist, and translator, Lee is the author of three books of poetry: Phyla of Joy (Tupelo Press, 2012), Ardor (Tupelo Press, 2008), and In Media Res (Sarabande Books, 2004), winner of the Norma Faber First Book Award and the Kathryn A. Morton Prize. Her most recent publication is the novel The Maze of Transparencies (Ellipsis, 2019). She works in university administration at Point Loma Nazarene University, and teaches in the low-residency MFA Program at Seattle Pacific University. Lee lives in San Diego, California.

I have matched this image by @solaristika44 – Marina Kozlova with this poem. You can view more of her work here.

A quote within this interview sums it up in relation to our ‘what is the greatest challenge of our time’ question, he answered ‘Raising consciousness and speaking about love with as much power as we speak about any other negative events (war, violence, climate change …).

Mobile Art and Photography That Has Influenced Me with Filiz Ak from Istanbul, Turkey

We are delighted to bring you the twenty sixth in our  ‘Mobile Art and Photography that has Influenced Me’ series of interviews here at TheAppWhisperer. I created this series of interviews to offer an opportunity to artists, to help to appreciate one another. When artists share their art,  I interpret it as if they are baring their souls. To put work in the public domain, takes fierce trust, to oneself, of the process, not the outcome, the outcome cannot matter. When another artist explains how this art affects them emotionally and spiritually, it gives motivation to artists, to keep creating, to realise the influence they have, throughout the world, to give and to share and that’s what this series of interviews is all about…fundamentally it is about love and fierce trust, love of art, love of one another, trust in each other and oneself.

Within this series, we contact well established and highly regarded mobile photographers and artists and ask them a sequence of questions. Each one relates to mobile art and photography that has inveigled and continues to impact them, by other mobile artists throughout the world. Our twenty sixth interview is with Filiz Ak from Istanbul, Turkey, enjoy!

In this interview, Filiz Ak cites work by: Jane Schultz, Peter Wilkin, Clint Cline, Roger Guetta, Sukru Mehmet Omur, Joyce Harkin, Eleni Gemeni, Andrea Bigiarini and Tricia Dewey.

Assignment – ‘Hope’ – Result and Fifth Essay with M. Cecilia São Thiago for our Forthcoming Book – Away with Words

With four chapters behind us, we are delighted to publish our fifth chapter for our forthcoming book ‘Away with Words’, this will be published early next year.

Our assignment for this chapter was ‘Hope’ and we have selected M. Cecilia São Thiago’s image from the selection we were sent, as we feel it epitomises this subject, for our fifth of twelve 1000 word essays, personally written by myself.

This non fiction work merges discursive scholarship with what may be construed as personal flights of fancy. That is not to say it will disappoint, moreover I have given myself a far and wide range to delve into photography, literature, art, theory, design and music as I tease out my own offbeat associations and at the same time astutely tune into each mobile photographers key tropes and artfully deconstruct their imagery. I thus begin:

“It was during the 6th century BC that the first versions of circuses and this type of entertainment appeared. Gathering at the Circus Maximus in Rome, 150,000 people attended performances.

From the magician to the madman, from the little teacher to the strange neighbor, from the eccentric aunt to childhood best friend, from Mimico to the trapeze artist, almost everyone seems to me here.

They are all part of a movie in which only children are real characters, as if only they are actually able to understand what is around us”. Maria Cecilia de São Thiago.
