Ekphrasis, as a word, comes from the Greek ἐκ ek and φράσις phrásis, ‘out’ and ‘speak’ respectively, and the verb ἐκφράζειν ekphrázein, ‘to proclaim or call an inanimate object by name’. The practice finds its route in the classical era, in Plato and Aristotle’s ideas on ideal forms and the mimetic stages at which an object may be viewed. Today, it is a common artistic practice that creates community, artistic collaboration and a therapeutic refuge through detailed observation and interpretation.
