German poet, Walter inspired us greatly with his focus on phonology, semantics and his ability to physically feel words. Using parts of his poems we depicted the main focus of his poetry- the importance of the phonetic structure and the spoken word... semantics stimulating cognition whilst the sound of the language evokes emotion.  Exploring the ability of the hands to functionally transform your mind into written language, and illustrating both his relationship to music and its influence on his poetry as well as the music of the language itself.
