Artist Stacy Isenbarger: I was drawn to its light and tangled noting of absence, how it brought out those warm edges of crumbling, breaking and disconnection. Poet Tyler Mills: I was thinking about absence but didn’t have any ideas about what an artist might decide to portray. I love what the artwork does with movement–the artwork is swirling around something that isn’t there, and I think it’s beautiful.
