Songs of Mihyar the Damascene

archivalart digital collage poem illustration

Illustrations of the poems of “Songs of Mihyar the Damascene” by the Syrian poet Adonis.

Every verse of Adonis’ poems is inserted into the search engine of different Open Educational Resources. The results  are online findings depended on the subjective categorisation that a human gave them through tagging. These results are used to create a new composition in the form of a digital collage. The poem itself takes on a new form, having been expressed through a collective knowledge, and Mihyar is constantly changing identity.
