Enjambement


Cindy Tonkin - July 17, 2020

Enjambement is where a poet continues a line into the next line, for example in this e.e.cummings poem i love

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)

This is 11 small envelopes made from Nicola’s offcuts.
The letters on sticks were an addition (who cares how it’s conceived, the work made itself in the end).
I do love the look of the shadows of the letters under lights.
I have made these origami envelopes before, but this is the first time I’ve joined them together. The brain wave came lying in bed yesterday that I could surpass the top of the envelope (the size of the envelope is constrained by the length of the offcuts) and then everything else was just playing with the cricut to get it to work.
Now to make a container to keep this in.
Thinking this would be a nice gift to make someone with their name or happy birthday or something similar.
