The Art of Making is an ongoing series, each film focusing on the process and materials. The carpenter and the red dress are fantastic too, but this, the making of a flamenco guitar is out of this world great.

Naturally it is night.
Under the overturned lute with its
One string I am going my way
Which has a strange sound.
This way the dust, that way the dust.
I listen to both sides
But I keep right on.
I remember the leaves sitting in judgment
And then winter.
I remember the rain with its bundle of roads.
The rain taking all its roads.
Young as I am, old as I am,
I forget tomorrow, the blind man.
I forget the life among the buried windows.
The eyes in the curtains.
Growing through the immortelles.
I forget silence
The owner of the smile.
This must be what I wanted to be doing,
Walking at night between the two deserts,
Former poet laureate W.S. Merwin visit the Florida Studio Theatre and we are proud to have this exclusive video.
Even though the title ("Screengrab") explains the technique, I still am scratching my head. So impressive. And a reminder it's no the tools that lead to creativity.
