Poem by Jenny Bornholdt
Ponatahi House is a large private residence in New Zealand.
120 glass panels form a skin around the upper level of exterior walls,
windows and terraces. My proposal to the owners was ʻto wrap their
house in literatureʼ. Etched into the glass, the poem is able to be read
in sequence from the personal spaces inside. From outside, the work
is more abstract, textural, louder.
