Standing on a ladder to reach an overhead projector on a raised platform, I incise my own English translation of Kurt Schwitter’s Merz poem An Anna Blume with a scalpel into acetate. I write in reverse so that the audience can read the projected text; at the same time, they hear the scratchy noise of the blade’s incisions, amplified by large speakers.
