Christopher Janke's poems have appeared in Harper's, A Public Space, American Poetry Review and dozens of other journals. Among other projects, he is currently working on a series of poems entitled "of the of of the of" that explore the relationship between words and objects through visual and sculptural reinterpretations of the poems.
His blog on the process for a large-scale installation in progress is at christopherjanke.blogspot.com
