Poems Written on the Full Moon
The hour between wolf and dog.
In French, “entre chien et loup,” designates the periods of day that are between light and dark—the purple dusking passage and the grey-orange of the day-gleam dawn. The prevalent interpretation of the idiom seems to be that, during these oddly lit hours, a wolf could be mistaken for a dog.
Landscape collaborated with artist Hunter Longe and Norwegen publisher Coda Press to design a book of drawings, dream transcriptions, and poems written during the full moon. The design echoes the many conceptual threads found within the artist’s work, introducing juxtapositions and layering created across a palette of thoughts—nonbinary and unbound by time, a place to experience the in-betweens.
“For me, drawing, poetry, and dreaming can act as divinatory tools to navigate slippery times. They follow a kind of non-logic, a random function of a quick non-sequitur that gets at the churning unpredictability and true weirdness of existence underlying the thin layer of pattern and structure to which we tend to attach so much importance. In poems and drawings, as in dreams, we hone back on deep instincts and intuitions that have been sequestered by striving for the lie that is reason.”
