For the approaching Spring 2015 term I need to streamline the concept— have images prepared in advance of the students’ participation.
Aside from moon imagery, I also carry an obsession with visual representations of the pomegranate.
In part, aside from the mystical themes it carries, the whole nature of the secrets each leathery orb contains suggests prospects of literary elements. The multitude of seeds, in the end, become each a diverse representation of the whole fruit.
Metaphorically it easily becomes an image of a blood-moon, heavily cratered, broken shell of a forgotten history.
It represents poetry. The bitter-sweet translations of ideas. A creative process.
