Still image from "Clevemark Dr.," a collaborative installation by Stephanie Ellis Schlaifer and Cheryl Wassenaar (fall 2014, St. Louis), based on Schlaifer's manuscript Clarkston Street Polaroids.

"The text, visually reinterpreted by Wassenaar in cut vinyl lettering, comes from Schlaifer's poems. Sculptural objects are covered in, made from, or altered by sugar, pickling salt, or soap," according to the artist's statement at Vimeo -- plus, "walk-through" the installation, which includes the poem "When the eye saw     it appeared," below (first published in Kestral (2011)). More images and discussion at the Fort Gondo site, here.
