Ex-Spec Po Presents :: A Collection of Collaborations || by Juliet Cook and jj hastain


Poetic Statement: j/j and Juliet’s collaborations feel semi-speculative, in that they are based on multifaceted hybridized emotions, visuals turned into words, aphasia turned into different words, and fusion mixes of blood and bodies, human, semi-human, semi-alienated, semi-empowered, semi-abstract, semi-paranormal, and other semi-juxtaposed thoughts/feelings/creatures brimming with mini mental blood baths and moons.

j/j hastain is a collaborator, writer and maker of things. j/j performs ceremonial gore. Chasing and courting the animate and potentially enlivening decay that exists between seer and singer, j/j hopes to make the god/dess of stone moan and nod deeply through the waxing and waning seasons of the moon.

Juliet Cook is a grotesque glitter witch medusa hybrid brimming with black, grey, silver, purple, and dark red explosions. She is drawn to poetry, abstract visual art, and other forms of expression. Her poetry has appeared in a peculiar multitude of literary publications. You can find out more at www.JulietCook.weebly.com.
