Obvious pronouncements that it’s best for individuals to use their own imaginations to interpret poetry aside, the folks at Teleportal Readings do a hell of a job creating stunning, visually imaginative brain candy from the words of writers. The following video animated by Scott Gelber of Ed Hirsch reading his poem “Self Portrait” at the Bowery Poetry Club is no exception.
