Initiated at SITE launch in September 2019, further iteration at Bound Art Book Fair at The Whitworth, Manchester in October 2019 as part of SITE Projects.
ABSTRACT: Generative poetry is a system to decode the parameters of text and performance in order examine their relationship(s) and role(s). I remove myself physically from the performance whilst leaving a trace of direction. To employ the audience with autonomy to manage their experience and sequencing with the work.
ACTION: The audience takes a selection of printed matter, through this action the audience becomes the performer. The text consists of one line from a poem / short story I have written. The printed matter has been re-sequenced prior to the performance being initiated, a further generative narrative is created from the selection(s) made and the outcome explores how the text interconnects with the participants narratives.
A pre-recorded soundscape is often present during interventions.
