Jonathan Galassi on Jenny Holzer

Throughout the month FSG publisher, poet, and translator Jonathan Galassi will be adding his thoughts on various aspects of the poetry world.

This is a Jenny Holzer piece using the work of Henri Cole. She projects their words onto buildings. She and Henri are close friends.
