It would be ideal if we could stop…

It would be ideal if we could stop forcing words into contrived and limited arrangements of communication.

Rather than adhering to prepared methods or attempting to articulate ideas that not only communicate but also interact, I will try to hint at how audience can begin this interaction themselves.

Primarily as a writer, I began with investigating other methods and mediums to bind ideas into a perceptible, palatable and understandable manner.  This initially was theatre and performance, then photography and finally film, adopting a manner of expressing usually associated with writing.

How to present a series of images  or scenes so they would be a poem, as an example.

Hence a living, breathing unborn flesh of what can be understood as a poem, infused with  thought and time, tries to find itself in and through different mediums. Initial association would define the “protocol” of this interaction. As these mediums (frames) build up, work gains self-awareness.

Aim  is for this body to become independent  from the concept of a “creator”.

As an artist I cannot claim with certainty, what my final contribution to Open Fields will be, photography, film, performance or an installation. Currently i only have estimates and hints as to what may take place.


Describing inner work which takes place as a playwright and poet, a pinnacle was reached where these notions required more than words so they can be portrayed.
This is now an attempt that through mediums of theatre, film and photography I continue writing poetry.
