Synopsis: Poetry. Art. Asian American Studies. Shin Yu Pai's poetry combines bare sensitivity and precision critique. In SIGHTINGS: SELECTED WORKS [2000-2005] she skillfully brings together four different poetic approaches to draw attention to the language of the commonplace and innervate tensions in the social familiar. Each project is drafted with a deft sense of position and line. Shin Yu Pai's poems are concrete objects of concern. Her eye for detail incises the subterranean erotics of gymnasiums, mass transit, and grocery stores. She transports the reader into the fissures of somatic displacement that scar the surface of everyday life. In SIGHTINGS, Shin Yu Pai delivers a rare optic, one capable of uncanny reflection and conveying the immediacy of feeling"--David Michalski.

About the Author: Shin Yu Pai is the author of Unnecessary Roughness (xPress(ed), 2005), Equivalence (La Alameda, 2003), and Ten Thousand Miles of Mountains and Rivers (Third Ear Books, 1998). Forthcoming projects include Works on Paper (Convivio Bookworks) and The Love Hotel Poems (Press Lorentz). Her work is anthologized in America Zen: A Gathering of Poets (Bottom Dog Press, 2004) and The Wisdom Anthology of North American Buddhist Poetry (Wisdom Publications, 2005). In addition to her work as a poet, she has exhibited her visual work at The Three Arts Club of Chicago, Gallery 2, The MAC, and the Gallery at the University of Texas at Dallas. She has collaborated with individual artists and groups as diverse at Hedwig Dances and the Hudson Exploited Theater Company. Shin Yu received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, with additional graduate level studies conducted at The Naropa Institute where she received the Hiro Yamagata and Zora Neale Hurston Scholarships. She has taught poetry at Southern Methodist University, The University of Texas at Dallas, The Writers Garret, The Cambridge Center for Adult Education, and Grub Street, Inc. and served as the 2004 Peter Taylor Fellow at Kenyon College. She has completed residencies at The MacDowell Colony, Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, Taipei Artist Village, Ragdale Foundation, and the Southside on Lamar Residency Program at the University of Texas at Dallas.
