THE VOICE OF ELBLAG

Audiomurale
Adriana Ronżewska Kotyńska, a Polish architect and painter interested in public art projects, originated the concept behind the Audiomurale and then executed it, with a team, on the wall of a townhouse in the Old Town district of Elblag, Poland. The team conducted interviews with passers-by recording their remarks about their town. Selected opinions – including some unprintable remarks – were transferred onto a blank wall of a townhouse in the form of spectrograms (i.e. sound wave patterns); the ‘voice’ of Elblag.

my new book available for pre-order

MY NEW BOOK AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW FROM POOR CLAUDIA. SUPER EXCITED. THEY MAKE SUPER HANDSOME HANDMADE LIMITED EDITIONS. CHECK IT OUT:http://www.poorclaudia.org/details_slease.php
No name but love, indeed, for Marcus Slease, in this exciting collection of small, surprising, lyrical poems which continue (very nicely, thank you) the ideas and methods of such poets as Clark Coolidge in At Egypt, Phil Whalen in Scenes of Life at the Capital, and Roy Kiyooka in Kyoto Airs. The writer’s eye & his heart remain open throughout this book, the language is clean, clear & refined, and one comes out exhilarated both by what Slease sees & by the way that he says it. In a world of spam (to paraphrase the author) he gives us (good) ham. With a big side of kimchee. Reader, read on! Because Mu! So! –in Japanese = Emptiness! Yes! 

- Tim Atkins (author of Petrarch)

Sexing the Cherry by Jeanette Winterson

I like the nine dancers and the big fat protagonist. I like nine. I like nine errors and Linus Slug. I am now writing a chapbook reworked from 2008 and it's all because of the nine. The new chapbook is called The Circle Line. Nine line poems. Each poem a different station on the circle line. Using bits of Dante. And lotsa other sources. There are nine circles of hell too. 3 sets of trinities. The third gender three times. And the third way with three different people. Nine. Don't we all love a g…
