new poems at Stride Magazine

Some new poems from a sequence in progress – ‘revised dictionary supplement’ – are up now at Rupert Loydell’s Stride Magazine site. The sequence was significantly edited during my residency at Arteles in Finland in November 2018. The texts began as a response to Bruno Munari’s ‘Supplement to the Italian Dictionary’ and explore questions of gesture, bodies, queerness, power and presentation.

trying out image ideas at Enter Text

I have been trying out ideas of images in relation to gesture, body, collage, sport, and language. Not entirely sure where these are going yet.

Made some gifs as an experiment.

making collages on Enter Text residency

I have been making some small collage pieces as part of my work on the Enter Text residency at Arteles Creative Center in Finland. The images are working around gestures, body language, and learned behaviour. The plan is for these to accompany a text I am writing on related themes and appear as an artist publication.
