Robin Smith Chapman

Poet Robin Chapman mixes language and landscape with her nonlinear science, poetry, and art. She'll read from her just-published ninth collection of poems, Six True Things, (Tebot Bach), an account of growing up in the Manhattan Project town of Oak Ridge, Tennessee, the "Atomic City;" and from Images of a Complex World: The Art and Poetry of Chaos, a collaboration with physicist Clint Sprott's fractals and explanations. She collaborates with artists, musicians, and scientists in work and teaches week-long workshops at The Clearing and Bjorkllunden in Door County. She is retired from UW-Madison's Waisman Center and Dept. of Communication Sciences and Disorders.
