Dylan Kinnett. Augury. 2020. Spoken word, video, and sound design by Curt Seiss. The Art of Everyone.

I wrote an essay to accompany Augury a videopoem. The editor’s note describes the essay well.

In a brief introduction to his video published in Everyone Quarterly, Dylan Kinnett offered, “Augury began as a short story, written during stolen moments while waiting for the commuter light rail underneath Penn Station, Baltimore. I would like to thank Curt Seiss for the sound design.” It’s such an evocative video that we thought it would be interesting to hear a bit more about it, so Dylan provided this glimpse into his artistic process.
