As an artist, I like to play with, test, and explore the limits and boundaries around reason. Intermedia is concerned with the spaces in which media intersect, which is one of the reasons that I am so attracted to Fluxus. For example visual poetry is poetry for the eye; falling into the space where visual art and literature intersect. Sound art is art for the ear, falling into the space where audio (music/sound) and visual art intersect. Reason tells us that visual art is not something that is meant to be appreciated with the ears, and that audio cannot be appreciated as visual art.

But when audio is approached from a sculptural perspective, it stands to reason that sound consists of air molecules in  motion --- it occupies space physically just as a sculpture does. Visual poetry also follows a reasoned path to a logical ending... Poetry starts as language expressed with rhythm, rhyme, and meter - is transcribed into text, and is then read silently or aloud to be expressed again. Rather than permit the text to remain on the page solely as a semiotic marker for language, visual poets use it as raw material for visual expressions. The result cannot reasonably called either visual art or poetry, but is clearly some hybrid, intermedia iteration of BOTH text and visual art.
