Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet M. A. Vizsolyi: It wasn’t until I saw it so clearly with my own poem that I really felt just how much a particular piece of visual art can influence the piece from the start. It’s akin to the way a piece of background music can influence the way we interpret a scene in a movie. Artist MJ Levy Dickson: I felt the rhythm of the walk and thoughts; a bird with a human looking eye in the wing, the sclera exposed, reflecting an almost human face, then gone in a moment.
