[ Poetic Intonation ]

Phil Kaye’s "Repetition" is a work of spoken word that explores the immense potential words can possess. Using Swiss-inspired graphic systems, its messaging is further emphasized and emulated typographically.

 

As the poem progresses, we learn about the influence and consequences of language on an individual and encourages the viewer to reflect on one's own relationship with words.
