This one sheet book structure has always intrigued me, and I have a particular love of Japanese shoji screens. The shoji pattern creates a window and the book structure creates a room or space. I wanted words to tie it all together, so I commissioned Carl Adamshick to write the poem. A reflection on silence and memory, visually transformed in an architectural space. Cosmology, by Carl Adamshick Silence is a window open to the mountain air. The window, a transparent map, of moonlight showing an ocean floor and the lost city where your child grew tall. Memory is the water you hear falling on the mountain as your hand pushes the silence closed. Carl Adamshick is the author of the chapbook Backscatter. His published work is known for subjects ranging from politics to the inner world of relationships and the ways in which human beings fail one another. In 2010, he won the Walt Whitman Award for his collection Curses and Wishes. Adamshick lives in Portland, Oregon, where he has worked for a printer for the past twenty years.
