Postcard for the London PoetryFilm Night II event in February 2005.

The event took place at the Genesis Cinema in London.

The design is a treated film still from Zata Kitowski’s poetry film “Full Stop” filmed in North Greenwich.

“Malgorzata Kitowski’s regular London screenings have become something of a cult attraction to independent film-buffs and poetry-fans alike. The work stretches from art house to documentary, calling at all points in between.” – Battersea Arts Centre, May 2005

“Cut-Up Experiment VIII” by Malgorzata Kitowski selected for the Stanford Code Poetry Festival

I was delighted to hear that my poem and corresponding PoetryFilm “Cut-Up Experiment VIII” was a finalist in the Stanford Code Poetry Festival.

An Oulipo poem employing anagrams and numerology is turned into a triptych cut-up. Each segment contains the same 166 words jigsawed in a different order. The film explores perceptions of meaning through seeing and hearing: in the first section, the words are both seen and heard; in the second section the words are heard and not seen; in the third section, the words are seen and not heard.

The event was sponsored by the Division of Literatures, Cultures, and Languages at Stanford University.
