Brickle, Nish and Knobbly

A Newfoundland Treasury of Terms for Ice and Snow

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Marlene Creates

In this adaptation from Creates’s award-winning video-poem, a series of photographs and prose poems of a river’s seasonal changes are observed and recorded by means of 80 named varieties of ice, snow, and winter weather in the Newfoundland dialect. These terms are precise, practical, evocative, sonic, and lyrical. Creates's video-poem won the Grand Jury Award at the 2014 Yosemite International Film Festival. Her work will be included in a solo exhibition at Paul Petro Contemporary Art for CONTACT 2015.
