floodtide and more at the 8th International Video Poetry Festival, Athens.

I’m very excited to be attending the 8th International Video Poetry Festival in Athens in December 2019. I’m doing a live spoken word performance with my video floodtide; another video Game Over – Grand Final Edition will be shown as part of a collection curated by Marie Craven; and I’ll be taking part in an extended symposium / workshop on how we make video poems.

Video art in The Wrong

The Wrong is a massive international project of on-line digital art organised into a series of pavilions, embassies, routers and events running through November 2019 and potentially beyond that. I’m delighted to have videos in two different pavilions.

with my eyes closed: imaginary midline was one of the first videos I made, originally as part of not absolute, a collaborative exhibition I did in 2009. It’s been picked up for the in absentia pavilion of The Wrong. This collection will be touring sites in Italy in 2019/2020.

Game Over: Grand Final Edition is part of Poetry + Video curated by Marie Craven, which has its own pavilion in The Wrong. This collection also will be touring during 2019/2020, … Click here for more.

let me go from the A21C remix project

Generated out of the AGITATE:21C collaboration, using a single video sample each from Sylvia Toy St Louis, Camelia Mirescu, Patrick King, and Ian Gibbins with audio samples from Sylvia Toy St Louis and Camelia Mirescu. The video was processed with Isadora 3 and Final Cut Pro X, and the audio was processed in Logic Pro X. No material other than the samples was used.

The title “let me go” comes from an auditory illusion of coherent speech created from part of a processed audio sample that repeats throughout the piece.

Birds of Öland screened in Croatia

My little video of birds we saw on the island of Öland off the coast of Sweden earlier in 2019 has been picked up to be screened at Klub Kino Split in Split, Croatia on 4th October 2019.

The video is part of a monthly series run by Klub Kino which has been running as a non-profit organisation active since 1952, with the aim of developing audiovisual culture and arts and providing space, technical and production resources for educational purposes and production, screenings and presentation of cultural and artistic content. The program is organised by Darko Duilo and this screening evolved out of the activities of a new international group promoting experimental and avant-garde cinema, video and other arts, AGITATE:21CClick here for more.
