y Poetry as Means of Dialogue in Court Spaces John Kinsella , Z1672800 2007 single work criticism 'I've always thought 'court talk' is poetic at its best, and that we should work collectively toward valuing it as poetry, as I will explain shortly. Poetry can be extremely inclusive, and a court house with poetry literally on the walls (and as part of the walls) or displayed in other ways (sound sculptures, free standing pieces), and certainly as a poetics of architecture (we might use Bachelard's 'poetics of space' as one of many points of departure here) is one that welcomes people to dialogue, and also reflect (and inflect) internally. To my mind, such a process helps make 'justice'. Lead by example rather than simply fix the problems: it's the recognition of the private within the public.' Source: John Kinsella
