Capital

"Capital" is a nonlinear poetry text that centers on Wellington, New Zealand.


Created in conjunction with the International Institute of Modern Letters at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Funding provided by Fulbright New Zealand. "Capital" is a nonlinear poetry text that centers on Wellington, New Zealand. The individual street names serve as titles for the separate poems that comprise "Capital," hopefully revealing the subtle differences between the neighborhoods. My overall goal was to experiement with the minute details of a landscape, the type of details that general informational maps leave out. I wanted a map that would help personify the city to a visitor just arriving in Wellington.
