DEZMON OMEGA FAIR
DEZ’MON OMEGA FAIR is the 2019 Film and Video Poetry Symposium Poet in Residence. He is a practicing interdisciplinary artist and poet living in Long Beach, California. Fair’s work explores self-reflection, behavioral observation, and the cathartic, achieved through brushless ink on traditional Japanese paper, collaborative film projects, as well as experimental forms of poetry. He is pioneering works in a new genre he has titled novel sonic, which implores the use of long-form audio recordings of readings paired with a public performance. These showings are set within large-scale immersive installations, which consist of figurative watercolor and poesy sourced from personal geographic and emotional histories.
