This talk will examine the ways in which art and poetic practices can revision our spaces and provide new anti-colonial tools. Rethinking colonial spatial philosophies must include our mind’s eye so that we can reimagine a just world. Settler environmental control is often invisible in its scaffolding of power, by revisioning we expose its superstructure and hopefully build new sightlines which account for colonial and racial injustice. I will explore the work of video poems, or “poemeos”, as Heid Erdrich calls them and speak to the various role of artist and poets to create new avenues that structure healthier relationships.
