PoetryFilm Blackboard was a participatory text/art project devised by Malgorzata Kitowski. Participants were invited to write or draw on a blackboard using chalk. A photograph was taken of each person’s blackboard and a montage film was made showcasing all the blackboard contributions.
PoetryFilm Blackboard was commissioned by the Southbank Centre as part of Poetry International and the Festival of Love on 18, 19, 20 July 2014 and took place at the Saison Poetry Library at the Royal Festival Hall.
This beautiful postcard arrived today. Many thanks to Rachel Mayfield.
Every Morning She’d Leave Me is the story of an ordinary man with an extraordinary history: his life in London in the 1960s underworld has been captured in a series of concrete poems created using his own words. Part poetry, part social document, the film features language from another time: watches on a villain’s wrists are “kettles” and dollars are “Oxford scholars”. The film is an animation set in American Typewriter Light.
Featuring lilies of the valley and the Expressionist painter August Macke from Germany; pomegranates from Israel; and barcodes from Portland and L.A.
With thanks to Tom Phillips.
The PoetryFilm Christmas Solstice event will take place on Sunday 21 December at the ICA in London.

The first typewriter artist to find fame was Flora F. F. Stacey, with her butterfly drawing of 1898; but since the very beginning of the typewriter’s existence, artists, designers, poets and writers have used this rigorous medium to produce an astounding range of creative work. Join Barrie Tullet as he guides us through three centuries of typewriter art and special guest Keira Rathbone who will be live typing throughout the evening, demonstrating how this most rigorous and unforgiving of machines still inspires today.
Talk with Barrie Tullett (7:15pm) with live typing from Keira Rathbone (6:30pm) on Wednesday 24 September 2014 at the St Bride Foundation.
“Just as, with reference to time, the abstract mathematical time to be measured with clocks has been differentiated from time specifically experienced by the living human being, one can also differentiate in the case of space between the abstract space of the mathematician and physicist and the specifically experienced human space.” – O.F.
