First Snow

  • firstSnow

Another Flickr-based project, First Snow is based on a poem I wrote in 2004, visualized through a combination of audio, music, and images drawn randomly/dynamically from Flickr.

Launched in December of 2007, my original impulse was to have the project “track” the progression of winter. As more people uploaded photographs of winter and snowfall, my goal was to have the project keep pace, to update itself as often as others updated Flickr. As new images became available, new views of the poem/project would also become available.

All images used in this project are shared via a Creative Commons Atribution Non-Commercial license. In that same spirit, I’ve also released the poem under the same license. More information and background on the project is available here.
