about their collaboration:

For the poems from "Nutritional Feed", I knew David and his work for a long time and knew that I wanted to write about his work.  We talked about his ideas and painting process and I spent several months living with his images. I started writing poems responding to his paintings during a residency at the MacDowell Colony when I had the space to really open up to looking at the work in new ways.  David's work appropriates a great deal from pop culture and also makes use of text - I experimented with using David's language in my poems which are very much engaged in a conversation with his paintings - the language, process, and materiality of his work.  As I continued with the project, he provided other paintings which I composed responses for.

about Shin Yu Pai's other collaborations:

This is not my first collaborative project - I have collaborated on past projects with Larry Lee (sculptor and installation artist), Mei-Kuang Chen (dancer/choreographer for Hedwig Dances in Chicago), and with Ferenc Suto (fine art photographer).  My own aesthetic is extremely interdisciplinary and the writing program which I studied in was based at an art school.  I have always been interested in crossing between disciplines and am currently engaged in several collaborative projects including an opera libretto and a haiku project.
