Introducing My Project: Surveyances of Morningside Heights

Hello MiW community, without further ado, here is my site!

Surveyances of Morningside Heights is a longform poetry piece I have written which explores what makes a space a place for us. How do we make places bigger than their physical attributes? I look at this through a relationship, the place’s history, and my own memories of experiencing this place. Within this I explore how memory work on an objective and subjective basis, and how they work sometimes outside of a chronological timeline. And it’s about who can claim a relationship- to a place, or to a person.

The piece takes form on the site as a digital poetry map so that you can explore my version of Morningside Heights, both through the locations on the map as well as through my images and words. I hope you enjoy!

Jack
