Garden Poetry – 2 gardens 2 experience(s) 2 connect

Byderhand Tuinverse (At hand: Garden Poetry) is a site specific digital literature project by the North-West University, Potchefstroom, South-Africa. In this project fifteen Afrikaans poets wrote poems and children’s poetry for the NWU Botanical Gardens in Potchefstroom. The poems are read by the poets and complemented with typographic animations and musical arrangements, as well as 15 totem poles with motives from the poems by the world acclaimed land artist Strijdom van der Merwe. 

A selection from At hand: Garden Poetry  was displayed as an example of e-literature as part of the Introduction to Electronic Literature course at the DHSI (6-10 June 2016), University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

2 gardens, 2 continents, 2 hemispheres – 2 experience(s), 2 connect.
