Description

Movement is Life is one work from Wildman’s series of code poems, which consist of short animations generated by computer code that are composed with a literary value in mind. The artist reads a poetic interpretation of each program alongside its visual output.

It was a cold winter day on an Island in Istanbul where a friend told me that their baby had begun to dream in their womb. I was shocked and said, "Inga, how can your baby dream if they have not seen the world?", they corrected me and told me that babies know past lives in the womb. This poem was a response to this moment.
