Published in the March issue of Poetry Magazine , the poem begins with a memory of Yoon as a student being mocked for her English, and by the end touches upon the current refugee debate in the United States and the Japanese occupation of Korea in the s.

This emotion opens my imagination to new ideas. I quickly capture them in my journal where they evolve into themes for tapestries. Setting up the loom and weaving is the marriage between imagination and manifestation. Silent Oratory: A Weaver Speaks There is no designated language for expressing the experience of living in the web of life.
This book is a companion to the tapestry series called by the same name. The textiles communicate vital aspects of the unseen world which resemble the whole-oriented principles of weaving.
WEAVES OF TIME: Pages from a Poetic Diary
Thus, I experience the unseen with the process of weaving. I combine poetry, distilled-texts, artistic expression, and an essay to stimulate a textural intellectual understanding. I make the point: a process-based perspective is missing in a world that mainly relies on the written medium but is also increasingly being controlled by dominant discourses that use words.
A process-based perspective could show the way to an alternative to a world divided by words whose medium compares, contrasts, and separates.

My own sense from having thought a lot about museums in relation to my PhD work and from spending a lot of time in museums is that one of the most fascinating aspects of museum culture is how museums often appear to be static—still steeped in traditional models of curation and exhibition—when, in actuality, significant changes in both conceptual approaches to material history and to visitor engagement have occurred. Paste: Memory is a very poignant theme throughout your novel. Hunter: When I was working on the last few revisions of The World Before Us at Banff in Alberta at an arts centre in the mountains where I could hole-up without interruptions , I made a list of pleasures and affections that I thought might find a place in the book—you know, felt moments when you feel in your body and life.
This is one of the themes of the book: the sustaining power of affection whether for a being or a thing or for the work one does or for the weather—how wonderful it can be to feel oneself alive in the world. These are my favorite kinds of memories: quick, electric, but lasting.
