haiku

.................................................................................
here i am is a set of haiku poems assembled from the words of six residents of the Haggerston Estate. A haiku is a poetic form which follows a 5-7-5 syllabic structure, traditionally offered as a gift among Japanese people.

here i am depicts life on the estate, oriented between past and present, and hinting beyond. The economy of words used to comprise each verse kindles recognition and estrangement and encourages reflection.

A reflection of residents’ everyday lives told through their own words.
