Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the blackbird.
             stanza 1, "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird", Wallace Stevens


Fourteenth Way unites the worlds of poetry and sculpture.

2300 threads are suspended in space. Over 3000 paper letters flutter in the ambient air currents. Text is snowing. A blackbird hovers, casting a shadow (void) on the implied mountainscape below. The bottommost elements aggregate into passages from Stevens’ classic poem.
