08.04.2021 Sand Journal De/constructed Poetry Contest
Poets were invited by Sand Journal to construct a poem from words they found around them. In response, I made a cut-up poem from a length of packing tape from the Anglepoise company. I was delighted to have my poem featured so prominently on their website, and was very happy to be among some wonderful found poetry company too. I loved the winning poem by Karen Yuan. Enjoy reading all the poems on their website.
11.03. 2021 Books are Bridges / Backbone Books
I was invited by book artist Claudia de la Torre to contribute to a mail art project, Books are Bridges, exhibited at A – Z in Berlin. In Books are Bridges, artists were invited to fill out a postcard sent by Claudia which said: Books are bridges between___ and ____. The work addressed how we connect to each other, asking if books can play a role in this connection. As they came in, responses were collected arranged into a growing book work. My friend Cesca Bondy visited the exhibition and kindly took some photos for me.
