Poetry. "AMBLYOPIA is an invitation to a new architecture, where spaces are construed with artifacts of the mind-favorite haunts, obscure discoveries, longings, persons and objects--as well as vital responses to the habitat it creates. Each gesture leaves a trace 'representing a kind of revolution or paragraph on a relatively fragile topic.' The writing is precise and lush. That we get to follow Jena Osman into her theatre of invention is an exhilarating pleasure of the first order"--Ann Lauterbach.
