Seventeen of Twenty

Alastair Cook has been at it again, with an evocative new project inspired by PechaKucha, wherein he comissioned twenty poets to write very short pieces to accompany twenty seconds of footage each. I was delighted to have been seventeen of twenty, and impressed with the results.

Jonah (Film-Poem by Alastair Cook)

Lens-based artist Alastair Cook has done a remarkable job incorporating a poem I wrote in memory of our neighbour-friends’ son into a film-poem in his characteristic visual style. Be sure to listen through headphones to get the full effect of Vladimir Kryutchev‘s binaural recordings. The film will premiere at the Felix Poetry Festival in Antwerp soon.
