Another videopoem from John Scott‘s projected feature-length documentary, Elizabeth Bishop and the Art of Losing. See “Sandpiper” for more information and links. Jason Harrington supplied the animation here.
I don’t know how to read this. Most people I know prefer “One Art” to “Sandpiper” but it seems on the web “Sandpiper” is more popular. And I have no perspective on the matter.
Thanks again for posting Dave.
My reading on that is that nothing out-competes cute critters on the web. And sandpipers are of course very cute. There might be a deeper meaning, but I doubt it. Both videos are very good, and “One Art” is much the more famous poem…
