A Dialogue in Useful Phrases on the air

leave a comment »

The sound mix of A Dialogue in Useful Phrases is part of Reuse Aloud, a month-long exhibition and radio broadcast throughout March 2013. The project will be hosted in The NewBridge Project Space in Newcastle and broadcast on basic.fm as part of its digital arts programme, Pixel Palace. Reuse Aloud is curated by Will Strong and Rosanna Skett and examines the art of using old and existing compositions to make something new, asking questions about originality in the digital age. It does this through an ambitious schedule of live and pre-recorded work with contributions from artists and musicians from across the globe. Sunday March 3 at 15.02 (UK time) is the first airing.

De zee is groen

leave a comment »

In the project ‘Uitgeschreven ruimte’ commissioned by BKKC in Tilburg, The Netherlands, artist Geert-Jan van Oostende and I realized an 11 meters long work on cloth. The project was an experiment in having poets and artists work together on creating a new work for the public space. It was funded by the Mondrian Fund and the Dutch foundation for literature. There is an exhibition of all the works created until January 27, and this specific work will remain on view permanently. Here is a view of sketch design and final work in situ. We were asked to make a work for the windows at the BKKC building and decided to stress a sense of surface without depth in both text and image. The text is my poem ‘De zee is groen’ composed around visual information from a Suske en Wiske comic book, the image is a shape created from the surface of Van Oostende’s working table.
