This chapter argues that in Frank O'Hara's hyperscapes, text and image, poetry and painting, and representation and abstraction do not simply coexist but also cross over or ‘cross-dress’, and applies the idea of semiotic exchange (whereby text becomes image, image, text) to O'Hara's poetry and collaborations. It contextualises this analysis by demonstrating how O'Hara's poetry uniquely interfaces with the semiotic, semantic, and ideological elements of two highly contrasting contemporaneous art movements: Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art.

Keywords:   Frank O'Hara, New York, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, hyperscapes, poetry, poem
