Astra’s page-based poems and objects often have an interactive dimension to them as a means of reaching out to new or non-poetry audiences as well as engaging with readers and viewers in a deeper sense. From her Poetry Jenga which has taken many forms over the years to wearable poems, her tangible visual poems often take the shape of — and reshape or transform — recognisable objects.
Concerned with playing too much? Worry not, too much poetry never harmed anyone.
