capricornucopia (the dream of the goats)
neves’ poems circle delicately like “birds . . . red heralds / stillborn in the throat” around the many sacrifices of giving to the light, which in Portuguese (dar a luz) is the idiom for giving birth. capricornucopia returns time and again to considerations of “how our mother tongue / forgets the word for missed” and how being lost or being found is often one and the same thing.

GlassBook Project: Brick by Brick, The Ironbound Oral History Collection was created by Artists-in-Residence paulA neves and Adrienne Wheeler in collaboration with Dr. Tim Raphael and students in the Honors Living and Learning Community course “Ironbound GlassBook Project” at Rutgers, Newark. This urban research and studio-based art course immersed students in the Ironbound neighborhood of Newark and the Oral History of the Ironbound Project archive a collection of over 250 interviews with Lusophone migrants that was founded in 2002 by Dr. Kimberly DaCosta Holton. The interviews served as inspiration for books produced by the student artists with Newark-based GlassRoots. The books are abstract portraits of the individuals and their stories from the archive’s oral recordings. They are on display as a catalyst for public dialogue about the Ironbound and the role of immigrants in shaping Newark and its history.

The GlassBook Project, ongoing since 2009, is a socially engaged artwork by Nick Kline that attempts to bear truthful witness to lived experience, particularly of those who have undergone struggles and psychological trauma.
