dadabloge


Very pleased to have my film and poem 'detached' included as part of the dadabloge event staged by the mobius group in Boston https://dadabloge.blogspot.com/2018/06/blog-post_24.html
'detached' began as a cut-up poem in English which was then translated into Romanian and read by Romanian dancer and artist Alina Stefan. As the dadabloge event is a tribute to dada founder Tristan Tzara (known to his friends as 'the little Romanian') it makes a nice connection...and special thanks to Tim Tsang for the loop through to the artists at mobius!



critical engagement

least obviously
intricate web
geometric poem
insistently intervenes

a demarcation
stake out
sacred discourses
strings plucked
within the fabric

texture may
resonate
virtually any shape
dangling
shadowing

deepest recesses
whose claustrophobic
affect
is something of an unquiet soul

it will always find ways to return

dadaland collective:



dadaland collective:

is a proposal for the next iteration of The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale to be called The Wrong (nova) scheduled for November/December 2019 and January 2020. The Wrong Board and Council is yet to hand down guidelines and timelines (this is expected late 2018), but from previous nova events organised by The Wrong's founder David Quiles Guill√≥ we might assume that they include this: “An interactive, full-environmental experience inside museums and cultural institutions, utilizing color, light, textures, music and design, in the form of collaborative and integrated art compositions and performances by a selected range of artists from around the world. Each time NOVA happens, it happens in a different shape and form, but always respecting its three key features: to reveal the work in progress, to generate all work in collaboration between the artists participating and to always make it live.”

dadaland collective:

takes as it's point of departure Hugo Ball's description of Cabaret Voltaire: “Everyone has been seized by an indefinable intoxication. The small cabaret is about to come apart at the seams and is going to be a playground for crazy emotions.”

As one who was a graphic designer in a past life typography to me is the greatest of all design disciplines. From the clinical precision of Univers to the quiet elegance of Candara it's all about how we communicate. An honour to be part of this event...
