Cyriaco Lopes and Terri Witek
selections from MINOTAURS

Minotaurs is a series of half-images/half-texts that is seen/read as a third via. It is a hybrid of poetry and visual arts created by an artist and a poet.

Minotaurs are a rift and also rough suture. They are a conceptual apparatus and hybrid savages.

(The viewer is a reader, the reader a viewer.)

The Minotaurs were created in Crete, Greece, by poet Terri Witek and artist Cyriaco Lopes in the summer of 2014.
