Our ekphrastic poems were our interpretations of works of art from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. I chose Roni Horn’s Untitled (Weather) made from ink printed between 2010 and 2011. The artwork consists of 6 pictures of a man at a public bath. His face is emotionless and some pictures are visible and some he seems to be hidden behind a layer of fog.
