Confusion - PoeTograph on Film  
5/15/15 Posted 5/15/15

Throwback to a time before digital images and social media, before smart phones with apps that put words on images, I used to write on my photography. Not directly on the print, but on the film or on glass overlays BEFORE I printed my work. #PoeTography - darkroom style. Was just digging around and found this and was surprised anew by this work - to see how true it is that the more we change, the more we stay the same. I dare myself to write on images now as it is new, when it really is an i... [more]

Poetry - Rubble  
4/2/15 Posted 4/2/15

I may not tow the line you draw I do not draw my own line to tow I am not a rebel I may not follow the system I do not disrupt it I am not an anarchist I may not fit in any of your slots I do not exist outside of it I am not a nobody I am the rubble at the end of the road to some I stink to some am still useful they dump what is theirs but has no place in their homes has no place in their lives Sometimes dogs come and sniff they lick me pick me chew on me I let them f...

After Dresden  
3/24/15 Posted 3/24/15

Your Baselitz heads of xanthous and brick, Glare lightly like sneezes on snow. Your courtyards and battlefields, Grey, paint walls of debris, of strangeness, lingering woe. A face wrung; water drops. Wool wraps womanly breasts. Cold trembles in pieces and barren blades crash down your walls. Oh disfigured city of black and green, Your houses all in a row. Hunched above rubble, Your tears swallowed by a forgiving earth. Skies widen, smoke settles. Ashen faces turn upwards. Your cloak dus... [more]

A collection of poems  
3/9/15 Posted 4/1/15

I have included these poems because my project proposal for the Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency relates to poetry and narrative. Coonara Suite Winter roses bloom in the season’s crisp chill, decorating a sparse array of vegetative hibernation. A field is covered with yellow like a sheet – daffodils disguised in the wash of colour. Down, down the stairs – a dream or destination; leading to a gully of uncertain ideas. S... [more]

I think that you think of a situation where an un-voluntary theater play is happening, nothing is lacking, not even a body that claims its complexity. There is no need to draw on shortage or blame the surplus of means. You just have to utter a sentence and rest, and the world will be created, as if you were a god that instead of power has poetry in his hands. These are just one of the possibles ways you can make up time when you suffer from tiredness. All the futures are present as a present,... [more]

1950s Collages by Helen Adam Anticipated the Internet Meme   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 1/5/15

A funny image accompanied by a one-liner caption—it’s a form we know all too well. The internet meme is infinitely reproducible, mutable, and sharable: they're digital artifacts symptomatic of our current cut-and-paste culture. But we’re not the first generation to cut and paste with wild abandon: in Europe in the 20s and 30s, photomontage became surreal art in the hands of practitioners like Hannah Höch, John Heartfield, and Raoul Hausmann; British artists took to colla...

The Man at Ululation: Bob Cobbing   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Bob Cobbing at CHELSEA space November 19th, 2014 - December 19th, 2014
Posted 12/10/14

On the wall of the gallery space at Chelsea College of Arts there is a screen on which a monochrome film plays out. It’s a transfer from an old tape marked at the edges with braided lines, strange interference artifacts of spooling marks in stark black and white framing the scene. The image of a room looks smoky, misty, colloidal, but that’s just the video. A man with a tight buzz cut stoops over a fire bucket, poised, an end-blown flute to his mouth, using the opening and the moveme... [more]

Allen Ginsberg’s Photographs: The Unforgivable Passage of Time   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e

Posted 10/24/14

An exhibition of Allen Ginsberg’s photographs, currently on view at the University of Toronto’s Art Centre, presents its audience with a large volume of stills taken by the poet between 1953 and 1996.

The viewer’s r... [more]

Why Patti Loves Paris and Paris Loves Patti   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 10/23/14

Patti loves Paris and Paris loves Patti, and the question that I’d ask is why? Now right at the beginning, up front, I need to make a few things clear. First, let me state that this relates to our FIAC coverage because Patti is performing at the most sought after, and possibly the only gig to feature as part of the FIAC programme. It's a reunion with John Cale, on Thursday night, at Fondation Cartier. Since this hardly seems sufficient to qualify my bold assertion I’ll also add tha... [more]

Here are two poems from my poetry chapbook on Van Gogh (enjoy!): SELF-PORTRAIT WITH BANDAGED EARAND PIPE When the ear he had laid to resrefused to go back on, the hand caught holding the brush continued to paint all afternoon:to give the best it could its full attentionto what might come next.

Glass House (Excerpts)  
8/30/14 Posted 8/30/14

Glass House (Excerpts of a book project) Box 2 Folder 12 Rain exhausts the earth: this is how all things begin. There is no error of nature no failed link, no thread which disentangled could draw us into the midst of truth. So. I am not proud of the translation which follows. But it is a key poem— one of the most characteristic and most beautiful. It is hoped that its curious and lovely quality may still be traceable through the metamorphosis. June 1, 2012 This is the history of a w... [more]
