Here's the first short video for the Outscapes project. It's called "No More Fish". 





08.03.13

Outscapes was initiated as a project to home an ongoing series of works that deal with a sense of landscape ostracism, of being outside or isolated from the world around. Most of these glimpses call for second glances, and play with the duality of being within and without landscape.

These are themes I am often drawn to in my work, and the website provides a platform to play out some of these ideas in a more open and exploratory way.

I've posted a couple of poems and images to kick things off here.

Delphine is a translator based in Toulouse. Many thanks to her once again for her continued involvement in the Travels Through Absence Project.


If you enjoy the film and want to see the rest of the book translated, do get in touch using the contact form on the right...

Here is the first video for the Travels Through Absence project, it is an accompaniment to the Vienna chapter. Let me know what you think!

"...I woke in this bed a week ago, with the crease lines of well-starched linen mapping out irrelevancies across my skin. I studied them as I focused, those precise and unequivocal lines forged into me so deep and yet temporarily. Soon enough they were fading as a dusk, and quickly my private etchings had dissolved into smooth flesh once more, blank, almost, but for some pale hairs and an occasional mole. But I didn't know these moles, nor these arms or legs, in fact nothing seemed to belong to me. And that's when I realised, in panic, numb, that I was all at sea. I couldn't and can't tell you a single thing about me. I woke up and all I could see, beyond the confines of this windowless room, was your face and the city..."

Travels Through Absence project I've posted a new gallery here
