The Secret Loves of Objects Part II: Timepiece
The second in a series of audio / visual installations exploring the voices of objects and the way in which literature is presented and experienced. Timepiece was designed for and shown at StAnza poetry festival in St Andrews, Scotland. Audio recordings of poems were implanted into three objects: A granddaughter clock, a telephone and a musical typewriter. Each poem was written from the point of view of the object that contained it. The lines of the poems shuffled, both electronically as audio tracks on an mp3 player and physically as a set of printed postcards, generating an unique performance each time the poem was heard or read.
