Poetry. Stephen Ratcliffe has been performing daily writing since 1999, when he began with PORTRAITS & REPETITION. Through a daily practice of acute perception of landscape and the experience of physical space, Ratcliffe has accrued several thousand pages of poems. SELECTED DAYS provides excerpts from six collections that span two decades. Ratcliffe's observations investigate the relationship of the material world to the materiality of language represented on the page, in his grid-forming Courier font. The result is a meditative documentation of time passing from an ostensibly still vantage point; still insofar as it never stops moving.
