Word Caresser + Your Touch / My Tongue

Diana Lobo


The Word Caresser series combines Braille with poetry to create a multi-layered reading experience that engages with the physicality of written ideas. Through these poem-objects, Lobo aims to convey the ambiguity that lives in poetry and highlight the power of words to create emotional and physical connections. The series is an invitation to touch and feel poetry, which is often seen as something intangible.

Featured in POÈME SBJKT, an exhibition of works of literature both on and off the blockchain that enhance, reinvent, and reimagine the relationship between text and image, analog and digital, blurring and challenging the lines that seek to divide.

POÈME SBJKT was curated by theVERSEverse in partnership with L’Avant Galerie Vossen and took place at Librairie Métamorphoses from May 25 – July 15, 2023.
