Shin Yu received 2015 GAP funding for “POMOLOGY”, a short collection of poems and images that is based on a public art and poetry project that she will first install and exhibit in the apple trees of Piper’s Orchard in Carkeek Park in August-September 2015. Funding will go into the preparation and submission of the manuscript as well as support materials and services towards producing a unique book that may also include an audio component, such as a CD.
