The Oulipo Compendium (edited by Harry Matthews and Alastair Brotchie) is the classic Oulipo resource.
Below are the details of the full PoetryFilm programme presented at Laugharne Castle on June 7 and June 8:
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.
