Visitors to the programme joined us to make cut up poetry and record it to vinyl. The following images are made from the texts which were left over
Visitors to the programme joined us to make cut up poetry and record it to vinyl. The following images are made from the texts which were left over.
The first compostition is from the text of Gullivers travels by Jonathon Swift. The white and black text is like the boat which is sinking (due to cut out parts). Other texts By Ursla K. Le Guin and Lewis Carrol also refer to in water situations. The texts I had chosen were related to travelling and dreaming. I realised (when documenting) I had often chosen language about travelling by sea; and the dreaming text also had underwater connections.
This is the first series of outcomes (by the Artist, AKA Me!) from The Tate Exchange Programme. It reflects one persons negative is another persons positive and the absence of text will let the ocean in!
The work made by participants is for evaluation and personal use only. We share practise methods, techniques, conversation and structure; this is the point of engagement. The outcome for both Artist and participant is knowledge and reflection, it is a two way street in this sense; both parties bring something to the table which can be applied to future art making or life in general.
