Stop Making Sense! is a poetry project I’ve just finished making in collaboration with talented poet and performer Kirsten Luckins, enigmatic yet irrepressible artist Logan Hanbury and others. It’s a small contribution to one of StAnza International Poetry Festival’s 2021 themes – ‘No Rhyme nor Reason’.
Stop Making Sense! is a website with light-hearted activities spinning a dizzy birl around the fraying threads of poetry and not making too much sense at all. There’s a collection of contributed nonsense to rummage about in (and contribute to) plus – it’s entirely FREE and anyone can join in, without actually having to go out!
Thanks to those worthy souls who’ve already contributed a verse.
Have a look, have a go, but most of all, have a laugh!
SciArt Magazine has published an interview I did following up on my work in the recent ‘Embodied‘ exhibit. They had some hard questions!
“Desire Lines: an interstitial chart” is a project I’ve been working on that combines design, poems and images – including several from this blog – in the form of a large paper chart or map.
The map itself is a kind journey or rendered songline of encountered moments. The piece will be made folded down similar to a walker’s map – like UK Ordnance Survey maps.
The mock up video below was for the printer to show how I imagined the map might fold – it’s only an A4 sheet of paper so very tiny! (the actual chart is going to be A1).
I’m hoping that “Desire Lines” will be for sale soon, so if you think you might be interested in having a copy, or maybe giving a copy as a present – watch this space! There are some other tasters here.
If any fellow bloggers feel inclined to share this to their followers –
