Watch “PoetryFilm Blackboard”

PoetryFilm Blackboard was a participatory text/art project devised by Zata Banks. 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.

PoetryFilm Archive: “Letter” by Eduardo Kac

KAC letter still

 

“Letter”, Eduardo Kac, 1996

A navigational poem that presents the viewer with the image of a three-dimensional spiral jetting off the center of a two-dimensional spiral. Both spirals are made exclusively of text. The reader is able to grab and spin this cosmic verbal image in all directions. Thus, reading becomes a process of probing the virtual object from all possible angles. The reader is also able to fly through and around the object, thus expanding reading possibilities. In “Letter” a spiraling cone made of words can be interpreted as both converging to or diverging from the flat one. Together they may evoke the creation or destruction of a star. All texts are created as if they were fragments of letters written to the same person. However, in order to convey a particular emotional sphere, the author conflated the subject positions of grandmother, mother, and daughter into one addressee. It is not possible to distinguish to whom each fragment is addressed. The poem makes reference to moments of death and birth in the poet’s family. Letter is presented here as video documentation of an interactive reading experience. – EK

PoetryFilm Archive: “You Be Mother” by Sarah Pucill

Sarah Pucill’s films and photographs explore a sense of self, which is transformative and fluid. At the core of her practice is a concern with mortality and the materiality of the filmmaking process. The majority of her films take place within the confinements of domestic space, where the grounded reality of the house itself becomes a portal to a complex and multi layered psychical realm. In her explorations of the animate and inanimate, her work probes a journey between mirror and surface, in which questions of representation are negotiated via the feminine, the queer or the dead.
