ACTION POEM. Blasting off into space

To Pier Paolo Pasolini, life itself and one’s actions within it were a form of poetry. This philosophy is a key influence on my way of living, of understanding life and its real magic. Today, 8th September 2016, these two creative events echoed each other and I feel deeply happy.

1. It’s a dream come true: my space loving and pioneering heart blasted off through the stratosphere, part of a rare adventure gathering explorers from all around the world. This photograph from the STELLIFEROUS series has been launched into space aboard the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, at 7:05pm EDT! Stored on a microchip, it will travel a total of 7 years to the asteroïd Bennu and back, then stay in space for millennia on a stable orbit around the Sun after mission completion. The hand refers to some of the earliest and most humble human art forms — the hand stencil — and pushes the limit of this promethean creative urge further into space.

Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station – a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts. Broadcasting live from Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts, the station aims to promote radio as an art form, encouraging challenging and radical new approaches to the medium. The broadcast schedule will include a series of 14 newly commissioned radio works, live shows, pre-recorded features and 12 Live-to-Air performances. The majority of the programme will be made up from selections submitted to an international open call for sound art and radio works. The station is managed by Mark Vernon and Barry Burns and is funded by a Creative Scotland Quality Production Award with additional support from CCA Glasgow.
