'haigacollage'

For her haiga, this innovative artist has developed a collage process using PaintshopPro 7.  In these experimental 'haigacollage', both image and haiku are 'found objects'-pictures, phrases and words that have been collected online or scanned from papers and magazines.  Because the text is assembled and manipulated as a raster layer, haiku and image develop in dialog.  The text functions both as word and as a visual element in the composition.  As a working method, 'haigacollage' produces freely juxtaposed, sometimes surprising verbal images; as a haiku exercise, it is a way of developing one's poetic awareness of the language that surrounds us in everyday life.
