The poetry of e.e.cummings has always had a special poetic attraction for me. This poem about the moon talked to me when I was thinking about which text to use as inspiration for 'text messages'. The full text is included on the piece in tone-on-tone machine stitching, though the impression for the viewer from a 'normal distance' is as if s/he were looking at the night sky with a full moon, the message being only subconsciously received. Beauty and meaning, of course, lies in the eyes of the beholder.
