Paintings and drawings by Isabelle Weber and recycled inkjet prints from “Awedience” and “Street Our Street“, two projects by M. Weber and Dana Smith provide the terrain for Weber’s disrubtions. Collaging rubbings from various historical and literary plaques from New York City and San Francisco form a complex found poem with fragments of Albert Camus, Gu Cheng, Lucinda Clifton, Dylan Thomas, Gertrude Stein, and other poets quoted on Library Way in New York City.
A somber concrete poem is formed that nevertheless celebrates human resilience.
A memorial portrait of San Fransisco poet Alfonso Texidor (taken by Dana Smith) also appears in the book.
