Cornelia Hoogland and Ted Goodden’s Cosmic Bowling (Guernica Editions, 2020) pairs Hoogland’s brief, meditative poems with Goodden’s humanoid ceramic sculptures to form a collaborative, multidisciplinary ekphrastic response to the I Ching. This book is the product of two practised artists, and both poems and sculptures have an unassuming, quotidian, near-directness about them, a quality of commonsense wisdom rendered just slightly laterally. Because of a faint translucence in the paper, texts and images are sometimes partially transposed through the pages, which perhaps one might take as a comment, intentional or not, on the overlapping nature of the reflections themselves.
Flip open to any page right after you wake up and read it before you start your day.
