Craig DongoskiI am an artist working out of Atlanta, Georgia. I have a deep interest in Sound Poetry history as well as practice. My context within Sound Poetry is by way of experimenting with the sounds made from drawing and employing the aural artifact to direct the production of drawings [see Drawing Voices].

I work in multimedia technology with a primary interest in connecting to the conventional practice of drawing. My work derives from investigations into a grey area between drawing and writing. The physical action of both practices has been a source of compelling curiosity for me. The relationship of the spoken and written word has led me to explore the connection between the drawn mark and the sound produced while inscribing. These explorations have manifested into two main projects entitled Drawing Voices (drawing] and Homophonic Translation [writing].

Participating collaborators have included artists outside of the Art Studio discipline e.g. Creative Writing, Dance, Media Studies, Sound/Music and Theatre. My methods have been acknowledged in a number of ways including being nominated twice for a Ford/Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship in New Media and receiving a University-Wide Award in Innovation in Instruction at Georgia State University. I also have a commercially released CD on Hydra Head Records, titled ‘Drawing Voices’.
