Sandra Stone is an award-winning poet, playwright, librettist, assemblagist; writer of short fiction. Her working life as a conceptual artist is in collaboration with architects. Stone has been honored with multiple commissions for public interiors and the landscape. In collaboration with three composers her comic operas and a performance piece will premiere mid-Autumn 2015. Of these she asks which is more lasting? The resonance of a note? The juxtaposition of disparate words on a page? Or words incised in stone eroded by acid rain? She writes in a light-filled room in Portland Oregon. She lives elsewhere.
