Lots to think about following the Art/Writing Talks at Spike Island on Saturday.
I plan to write out a response in the coming weeks, but for the time being below is a slideshow recording of my own presentation, which considers the possibility of reciprocation between art and writing and between practice and everyday life.
This was the second of three Art/Writing Talks curated and chaired by Fiona Fullam, and also presenting were Daniel Jewesbury and Jesse Jones.
The first of the talks was at The Dock, Carrick-On-Shannon on 13 November, with speakers David Berridge, Declan Long and Tine Melzer: David Berridge writes more about the event here. The final event will be at The Goethe Institute, Dublin on 11 December, with speakers Maria Fusco and Maeve Connolly.
On Friday 27 November four Icelandic poets and eight British poets will present new writing at the Icelandic Embassy London. The event has been organized by SJ Fowler in association with Maintenant and 3:AM Magazine.

The person at 298b has only a very small window offering almost no view at all: just the top of a brick wall and a few inches of sky. This is inadequate. At times he feels like staring into the plotless scrolling of people and things you get through proper windows, but there’s nothing to see. The view’s blank.
So at times like these he’s started building the view himself. Read the rest of this entry »
Here’s a video of the conducting experiment I put together earlier this year as part of my project Musica Practica.
Conductor Anthony Weeden and I have since collaborated with Patrick Coyle for Getting To The Point, the closing event for SE8 gallery’s Mulberry Tree Press. More about that another day.
