Trigonopoems is a collaborative project where participants are invited to write poems based on the paintings from my Trigonopoetry series. These paintings start from the pages of two 1920’s trigonometry textbooks. Some words are masked out to create new phrases, and the rest is painted.
Anyone can sign for the project using the form to the right. The guidelines are simple:
 a participant can write one or more poems based on any painting(s) from the series (there
are no limits on the number of poems or paintings).
 The poems can be based on the painting’s text, image, or both.
 Participants are encouraged to finish the poems within 2 months of signing up for the project.

Below you can see all the paintings from the Trigonopoetry series. For each painting, the text from the painting is also copied underneath the image. Due to the large number of paintings, they are split into several tabs. For each painting, the title is in bold and text in the painting is italicized; press on the thumbnail to see a larger image.
