Drawing influence from such sources as Chris Marker, Anne Carson, and Pythagoras, "Pandora's Star Box" marries poetry and film. Structurally, it creates a dialog between the mediums of language and moving picture. This dialog is echoed thematically in a focus on the intersection of science and myth. Expect Pandora, an astronomer, sublime peaks, vast skies, and mystery.
