Support the M Project 1 (Poetry)

Welcome to the M Poetry Tier! With this tier, you will get at least 4 exclusive poems a month from our curator Frank May. His Twitter account (https://twitter.com/<wbr>authenticognomn</wbr>) is a poem series he has been developing for the past few years "Text Poems." With this series, he uses only auto-fill words within the Twitter field to generate poetry. He never "writes" a word, he "selects" them. His inspiration comes from the Dada poets of the early 20th century and contemporary poet Kenneth Goldsmith. This work speaks to current issues of immediacy and human/technology relationships. The poetry you will receive weekly here will be aligned with these concepts. Feel free to share your thoughts. If you subscribe to any higher "M Project" tier, this one will be included. Thank you for all your support for the M Project!

Welcome to the M Photography Tier! With this tier, you will get at least 2 exclusive original digital photographs artworks a month by our curator Frank May. You will also receive "M Project 1" tier as well. Frank has been working on an Instagram photography series for 5 years. Here is the link: https://www.instagram.com/authenticognomen/ Each photograph has both be taken and uploaded the same day. He uses no filters and no tags. To reflect our contemporary hyper-immediate culture and media consumption, these photographs are experienced as fast as they can be. The image evokes in the viewer the sensation of a casual walk, and a discovery of something simultaneously plain and remarkable. Frank wants you to imagine your scrolling as strolling. Your device's window becomes momentarily transparent as you pass by. Digital photography has a hyper-efficient ability to reach you were you are. The image's "intended home" is the device on which you are viewing. Whenever you open up the file, you always have the original work present. Feel free to share your thoughts. Thank you for all your support of the M Project!

We would like to thank you for all your support of M and sticking with us. Your contributions mean the world to us. It is what is keeping us going :-) We are happy to announce we will be completely revamping our patreon page for 2020. Late last year we added a second space to the M family called M Galleries PNA. It is located at 54 Mine Hill Rd. Washington, NJ 07882 on the Pohatcong Native Arboretum. We are thrilled to be able to have a second gallery! The regular hours are Sat and Sun 9am-1pm. Please stop by. If you would like to make an appointment, please feel free to call or text (908) 689-3414 We will be including M Galleries PNA into the M Patreon line-up. So many new doors have opened up with the addition of this place. One of the main things in the works is the groundbreaking of a new sculpture garden. New benefits for being M Patreons will be here shortly. Thank you for being with us for this transition time. More to come very soon!
