Through a physical construction of a Poetic Lineage Map, I’m interested in exploring the many overlaps of poets, authors, and other artists whose work has deeply impacted the poet I am today. By observing these parallels and confluences of writers, I’m deepening my understanding of poetic evolution and the importance and knowledge that comes from understanding other poets' inspirations and influences. The way I executed it, I see it as kind of a web, all the influences spinning around me. I centered much of my map around my mentor poet, Dorothea Lasky. I’ve found a lot of interviews with her where she discusses her influences, so I wanted to include them here. Some of the people (like Freud, Turgenev, and Kafka) aren’t influences of mine but I see how they indirectly relate to me because of their influence on Lasky. I thought it important to include my other literary influences (like Terry Tempest Williams and Tommy Orange), theatre influences (Sam Shepard, Neil Labute, Tennessee Williams), and musical influences (like Joni Mitchell). For the design, I wanted to do something that represents my aesthetic. I chose to collage on a red poster with images from a book called “The Leisure Alternatives Catalog” from 1979.” I focused on pictures incorporating nature, dance, and other arts activities that represent my influences. I used gold glitter glue to make the threads to connect everyone’s lineage.
