Visual Poems by Jeffrey Grunthaner

The Trouble with Sundays is a work of poetry presented in the form of a fragmented novel. Approaching a multimedia text, the book should feel like it becomes “glitched.” This digital aspect gradually ruptures the linearity of the text, creating a unique space for the emergence of the poetic. The project condenses the analog and the digital, operating through the insertion of (digitally inspired) poetry into a realm normally reserved for the prose page—in short, the emergence of poetry out of the realm of the prosaic.
