“There is not just one reality. There is only one’s own perspective, which can be very different depending on who you are…a compromise among many ways of seeing. Hence, realistic drawing is more like the smallest common denominator than any actual reality”

(Scheinberger, F. Dare to sketch: A guide to drawing on the go)

Another collage poem made in response to the brief at Singapore Unbound. Like this one, it’s using found text from secondhand books and surrealist methods to see if colonial-age narratives can be re-made in a different way.
