“Earth Shadow” — Deuter

We receive an incredible outpouring of material for our Poetry Exposés and have connected with poets that submit for future material. The entries are so intriguing that we made the decision to feature the highlighted poetry with new art (following the publishing schedules below).

Once the poems are moved from their listed main pages, they can be found and enjoyed in an archive for the page they were on. We look forward to developing a creative flowing relationship with many of those who submit through our Expos . . .

ZO is an experimental art convergence project. Our mission, structure and methodology are all “new.” We are designing some facets of our magazine as it organically develops and plan to publish a hard copy every three years in coordination with a 12 Hour international art event that we are now structuring and orchestrating. In addition to the winner of our yearly Poetry Exposé, we may publish some of our other favorite poetry pieces found here in that hard copy. We will be in touch with you if so.

Please explore our pages as we post most of our strategy and plans throughout the magazine. We also archive a lot of the featured work that we change on a daily, monthly and quarterly basis. Enjoy! Thanks again to all of the intriguing poets above. We are honored to connect with you as ZO continues to add an international exposé of deep thinkers and their creative works . . .

We all get dealt different cards in life, but we want to imagine outside of the box of this world’s seemingly stacked deck.  ZO in many ways is filled with metaphorical and abstract thoughts about everything we present. There is also an incredible synchronicity surrounding the orchestrations we experiment with.  We absolutely believe creativity can change the world!

It was interesting to mesh the poems we received from our 2014 Expo (based on Luis José Estremadoyro painting) with “New Art.” We will again re-envision the poems received this year (based on John Vega’s incredible digital work) with “New Visuals” and continue this pattern. This is in a way, kind of like marrying off your children …
