Diane di Prima, George Herms
Haiku originated in New York City in 1964, when Beat Generation poet Diane di Prima gave West Coast assemblage artist George Herms a series of seasonal poems that would lead him to create a suite of woodcuts illustrating them.
Diane di Prima (1934-2020) was a poet whose writing, activism, and organizing helped define the Beat Generation. She has published more than thirty collections of poetry, as well as memoirs and short stories. She was named Poet Laureate of San Francisco in 2009 and has received the National Poetry Association’s Lifetime Service Award.
George Herms (born 1935 in Woodland, California) is an artist/alchemist whose work finding the beautiful in found and discarded objects has led to his being known as one of the founders of the West Coast “assemblage” movement. He has created jazz-inspired sculpture, installations, paintings, drawings, prints, and music all based on an ethics of discovery, rearrangement, and play.
俳句起源于1964年的纽约，当时 “垮掉的一代 “诗人黛安-迪-普里马（Diane di Prima）给了西海岸组合艺术家乔治-赫姆斯（George Herms）一系列的季节性诗歌，导致他创作了一套说明这些诗歌的木刻。
乔治-赫姆斯（1935年出生于加州伍德兰）是一位艺术家/化学家，他的工作是在发现和废弃的物体中寻找美丽，这使他被称为西海岸 “组合 “运动的创始人之一。他创造了受爵士乐启发的雕塑、装置、绘画、素描、版画和音乐，所有这些都是基于发现、重新安排和游戏的伦理学。
