Recently Jess visited Portland and stayed with me, so we had an opportunity to hang and talk about this project in more depth. I also got to experience her work firsthand: the way she composes individualized poems, scripts the words onto the skin, and finds just the right light and angle with her camera.
I sent her these interview questions when she got back to Barcelona, her latest expat home, because I think this project is about more than just sexy poems, and I wanted to find out exactly what Jess thinks it is.
