Valerie Sinason on the language of trauma and dissociation. (abstract)
Mark Solms on ‘The Mind of the Artist’. (abstract)

Echoes (6 minutes, 35mm)
Artist: Jaimz Asmundson
A process-based, experimental film about loss, and the parallel between memory and the physical self: how it evolves, degrades and disintegrates. Structured around the recollection of a premonitory dream, fragmented memories from the period leading up to the death of the filmmaker’s mother were projected onto natural textures and surfaces, re-photographed, composited and processed until the memories became abstracted representations of the evolution, degradation and disintegration of memory and the physical self.
Three Mirrors (20 minutes, 16mm)
Artist: Diana Mavroleon
Shot in the mid-1980s, the film was written using automatic writing to explore the unconscious mind, using mirrors as in-gates. Three Mirrors was made just down the hill from the Freud Museum at Cinema Action in Winchester Rd, and was used for discussion in R.D. Laing’s department of Psychology, in the “Dream Workshop” on Eton Avenue. The film received a ‘Composer’s Commission’ from GLAA, and features an original score by Gary Carpenter.
You Be Mother (6 minutes, 16mm)
Artist: Sarah Pucill
You Be Mother uses stop-frame animation to disrupt the traditional orders of animate and inanimate, the fluid and the solid. An hallucinatory space is set up when a frozen image of the artist’s face is projected onto weighty pieces of crockery atop a table. Ears, eyes, nose and mouth all become spatially dislocated as a determined hand begins to reposition, decant and mix. Events unfold to the amplified sounds of grinding, pouring and stirring.
Palindrome (2 minutes, 8mm)
Artist: Zata Banks
Male and female move towards the centre.

Poetry and Psychoanalysis
Psychoanalysis and creativity both seek truth and transformation and have a long and complex history. Freud, as a fine writer, brought in both his appreciation of and ambivalence for the poet who, he felt, could delve deeper than the analyst, but not understand what s/he had brought to the surface. He also considered art of any kind could only work if the primary narcissism of the artist was adequately concealed. As a psychoanalyst and poet who loves language Valerie Sinason provides examples of this from her own work as well as that by others and also shows how the literal can sometimes be denigrated in favour of the symbolic
The Mind of the Artist
Freud famously declared that artists retain their infantile fantasies to an unusual degree. In effect, he argued that they are more narcissistic and less reconciled to reality than non-artists. Does this theory hold water? Psychoanalyst MARK SOLMS will address the question in dialogue with poet and artist ELIZA KENTRIDGE, using her as a sort of ‘case example’.
From Pain to Paint
In this presentation I will talk about how images can transform trauma. I will discuss image-making from my own autobiography, illustrating this with poems fromThe Zoo Father and Fauverie, and how the animal imagery filters the pain. I will also show how I have explored trauma through the exuberant but harrowing art of Frida Kahlo, in my collection What the Water Gave Me: Poems after Frida Kahlo, and how working with her images and story allowed me the freedom to explore my own difficult subjects in poems.

The bomb will explode in the bar at twenty past one.
Now it’s only sixteen minutes past.
Some will still have time to enter,
some to leave.
The terrorist’s already on the other side.
That distance protects him from all harm
and well it’s like the pictures:
A woman in a yellow jacket, she enters.
A man in dark glasses, he leaves.
Boys in jeans, they’re talking.
Sixteen minutes past and four seconds.
The smaller one he’s lucky, mounts his scooter,
but the taller chap he walks in.
Seventeen minutes and forty seconds.
A girl, she walks by, a green ribbon in her hair.
But that bus suddenly hides her.
Eighteen minutes past.
The girl’s disappeared.
Was she stupid enough to go in, or wasn’t she.
We shall see when they bring out the bodies.
Nineteen minutes past.
No one else appears to be going in.
On the other hand, a fat bald man leaves.
But seems to search his pockets and
at ten seconds to twenty past one
he returns to look for his wretched gloves.
It’s twenty past one.
Time, how it drags.
Surely, it’s now.
No, not quite.
The bomb, it explodes.

PoetryFilm Archive: “Proem” by Suzie Hanna – first screened at PoetryFilm at Laugharne Castle in June 2014
Directed by Suzie Hanna © Dec 2013
Animation by Suzie Hanna
Sound Design by Tom Simmons
Poem by Harold Hart Crane (1930)
Voice by Tennessee Williams (1960)
(Permission for use given by HarperCollins)
This short film illustrates and interprets Hart Crane’s ‘Proem To Brooklyn Bridge’ (1930) using a direct animated stencil technique reflecting graphic styles of the period, the evocative voice of Tennessee Williams (a great admirer of Hart Crane’s work) and original sound design. This is an interdisciplinary contribution to research into cultural representations of literature and literary figures through animation and sound design, underpinned by study of Hart Crane’s creative process and his use of metaphor.
This Poetry Animation is a representation of Hart Crane’s iconic ‘Proem’ from his epic work ‘The Bridge’. Suzie Hanna animated the film using hand cut stencils imitating some graphic aspects of contemporaneous 1920s New York artists who were in Hart Crane’s coterie, such as Joseph Stella and Marsden Hartley. She also referenced Vorticism to capture vertiginous aspects of the verse. The voice of Tennessee Williams, who was an ardent admirer of Crane, is taken from a 1960 recording. Tom Simmons has built this into a resonant dramatic soundscape which interprets the materiality of the bridge, the surrounding land and waterscape and the ‘prayerful’ qualities of the Proem. He embeds sonic references to Hart Crane’s ‘shamanic process’ in which the poet played records on his Victrola, including Ravel’s ‘Bolero’, loudly and repeatedly, whilst drinking heavily and typing phrases in manic bursts. The film is part of ongoing research into representation of poetic metaphor, between Sally Bayley, Tom Simmons and Suzie Hanna: their recent article ‘Thinking Metaphorically and Allegorically: A Conversation between the fields of Poetry, Animation and Sound’ was published in Autumn 2013 in the Journal of American Studies. A further installment has been commissioned for publication in Spring 2014.
Director’s biography and filmography
Professor Suzie Hanna teaches at Norwich University of the Arts. She is an animator working with mixed media across analogue and digital interfaces, who collaborates with other academics and artists, and whose research interests include animation, poetry, puppetry and sound design. She has made numerous short films all of which have been commissioned, selected for international festival screenings, TV broadcast or exhibited in curated shows. She contributes to journals, books and conferences, and has led several innovative projects including animated online international student collaborations and digital exhibitions of art and poetry on Europe’s largest public HiDef screen.
Recent animations include a book trailer ‘Spells’ for American poet Annie Finch, ‘Letter to the World’, commissioned by the Emily Dickinson International Society, animated theatrical scenery for a production of The Tinderbox, an animated Madonna figure for a 30 foot high projection commissioned by Norwich Cathedral, ‘The Girl who would be God’ commissioned for Sylvia Plath Conference at Oxford University and ‘Man-Moth Merz’ for screening at poet Elisabeth Bishop centenary celebrations in Nova Scotia.
The ‘Proem’ film is part of ongoing research into representation of poetic metaphor, between Sally Bayley, Tom Simmons and Suzie Hanna: their recent article ‘Thinking Metaphorically and Allegorically: A Conversation between the fields of Poetry, Animation and Sound’ was published in Autumn 2013 in the Journal of American Studies. A further instalment has been commissioned for publication in Spring 2014.
Harold Hart Crane was a Modernist American poet, most famous for his epic work ‘The Bridge’. He was born in 1899, and after his tragic early suicide in 1932 he became recognised as a legendary figure in American poetry. He indulged in frequent bouts of serious alcohol abuse and risked casual sex with sailors, but despite suffering from low self-esteem, he wrote optimistic poetry. He was a follower of Whitman’s American Romanticism, and was concerned with themes of redemption and damnation. He was in a coterie of active, and later influential, artists and writers in 1920s New York, and the archive of his considerable correspondence is held at Columbia University.
