Intermission: We Dare You to Not Get a Crush on This Poetry Bomber

by Cord Jefferson

July 8, 2011

Agustina Woodgate is an Argentine artist living in Miami whose work includes everything from doormats to produce-sticker collages to giant rugs made of stuffed-animal "hides." When she's not doing all that, Woodgate also finds the time to go "poetry bombing" around Miami thrift stores. Using her deft hands and a needle and thread, Woodgate sews short poems into pieces of clothing with the goal of anonymously brightening some shopper's day. "So that poems can be in every day life," she says.

Judging by her CV, it's only a matter of time until Woodgate is up on the walls at your favorite gallery. The smart money is scouring Miami clothing racks right now, looking for a soon-to-be priceless pair of old pants.
