Working in collaboration with a poet, text words and image.
Poetic Memos - Landscape Poetry, sensitivity to the sounds, textures and emotion were so profound in this work, it links with my ideas of developing some footage around the poems.
Collaborating with artist Liz Churton and poet Oliver Lomax, our first meeting looking at some material, texts, books, and art works.
This is a line from one of his texts which I find very inspiring, linking land, place and time through the strong visual context in his language and ability to create images from the page with the spoken word.
Poetry by Oliver Lomax ......I cupped it in my hand
lifted it up from the law of the land
and held its pale sum, a loft to the debut of the morning sun...........
Here, go on then, take him'
this excommunication, this birth, this exhausted migration.
Working with the ideas of addressing places, land, climate, environmental change and the people that it affects.
And in that thunder clapping moment
through the pick-up stick pines
I saw a whisper, a fragment of life.
This is the series of poems by Oliver.
