  6. Robopoem@s

    Robopoem@s consist of five insect-like robots whose legs and bodies are engraved with the seven parts of a poem@ (“poema” in Spanish) written from the robot’s point of view in bilingual format (my original Spanish with English translations by Kristin Dykstra). Voice activation, micro-mp3 players, and response to sensors (reactive to obstacles) allow these quadrupeds to interact with humans and with each other, emphasizing the existential issues addressed in the poem. The final segment of the poem, number VII, re-phrases the biblical pronouncement on the creation of humans, as perceived by the robot: “According to your likeness / my Image.” With this statement, the notion of creation is reformulated and bent by the power of electronics, ultimately questioning its binary foundations.

  9. Fall 2020 Editors' Note

    Last March, halfway through assembling the Spring 2020 issue of The New River, we had to adjust to a fully online mode of collaboration. Between then and now, though a tremendous amount has changed, our mission has remained the same. Since its foundation, The New River has devoted its platform to emerging and established artists exploring the intersection of digital art and literature. The COVID-19 pandemic has shed new light on what it means to run a digital journal, especially at a time when so many of our daily interactions and responsibilities have, by necessity, shifted to the digital realm.

    The work we have selected for our Fall 2020 issue helps us come into a deeper understanding of how this current period of crisis strips bare long-standing inequities and injustices, calling us to exercise a cache of empathy and compassion we might have never known before. These pieces demonstrate how art can be a guiding force through even the most turbulent times, pushing us beyond our private quarantine bubbles and back into the world, where art and creativity persist.

  10. Cloud Poems

    Rosenblatt, a Dutch-American writer, designer, and artist, devises a creation of cloud-gazing intensity. Through an interwoven quilt of poetry and sky, Ella accomplishes, in our view, two opposing goals at the same exact moment. Gorgeously constructed and written, this project offers the reader a period of respite and calm. In today’s world of screen time and hyper-connectedness, where attention has become a commodity and our lives are spent stressfully indoors, this is no small feat. And yet, like any good poem, these “Cloud Poems” are calls to action. Mesmerizing in their quiet energy, they ask us to take responsibility for what we give our attention to. As Thomas Merton writes, “I myself am part of the weather and part of the climate and part of the place, and a day in which I have not shared truly in all this is no day at all.” Ella Rosenblatt’s “Cloud Poems” tell us, in essence, to look up.
