"If a self is partly created through a flow of information, what is the sound of its interruption? What violence has a constrained self endured before escape? What lyrics accompany that endurance? If 'tyranny / controls the air,' how does one recover from a shattering? All of the above are questions Serena Chopra's IC addresses, suggesting a surviving self creates its own language from the fracturing. Chopra writes: 'I am / the human shape /of loving you,' offering us a rhythmic, elemental, gorgeous and modern take on the Icarus myth, a promise of resurrection amid the ancient and perilous process of becoming."
