Optics of writing: through and between

leave a comment »

Thursday 13 March 2014
Optics of writing: through and between
Workshop 3 – 5pm.
Live event 6.30 – 8.30pm

The immaculate conception
of the inaudible bird
occurs
in gorgeous reticence…
— Mina Loy, Brancusi’s Golden Bird (1922)

In the November 1922 issue of ‘The Dial’ magazine, Mina Loy’s short poem – ‘Brancusi’s Golden Bird’ – appeared alongside a photograph of the sculpture it names. The verse is oblique. The picture (taken by Brancusi himself) is almost opaque. Together, they offer as much of a departure from as they give a depiction of their shared point of reference. Part of ‘The Optics of Writing’, a series of events by the Art Writing programme at Goldsmiths, ‘Through and Between’ is a continuation of that departure. Along the way asking what, if anything, of an object can emerge ‘through and between’ its representations.

Workshops will be lead by Patrick Coyle, Barnaby Lambert & Daphne de Sonnevill. Participants need to register their interest and get reading material from Francisco Sousa Lobo fsousalobo@yahoo.com

Optics of writing: Out of sight
Workshop 2 – 5pm
Live event 6.30 – 8.30pm

Led by Sally O’Reilly, Catherine Smiles and Heather Welsh, the workshop will explore strategies and techniques for presenting text in live or pre-recorded audio formats, and suggest methods of translation and compensation when diverting text from page to ear.

Please send, by 17th March, a new or existing text, of up to 1000 words, that you would like rework into an audio piece to catheriner.smiles@gmail.com

During the workshop Sally, Catherine and Heather will discuss your texts, one-to-one, while you work on them for possible presentation at the evening event.

A schedule and equipment list is attached, which you should bear in mind when considering how to configure any final presentation in the space.
