Object oriented art?

12Mar11

No…just more anthropomorphism. I suspect I’ll be attending anyway.

For anyone in Scotland who might be interested, this is part of St. Andrew’s Annual poetry festival, Stanza.

The Secret Loves of Objects, Part II: Timepiece

A series of audio/visual installations exploring the voices of objects

Thu 17 – Sun 20 March | 10.00am-5.00pm
The Trust Museum, North Street | Free
(Preservation Trust Museum, North Street, also at The Byre Theatre, Abbey Street, Level 2 Foyer and The Town Hall)
2.00-5.00pm weekdays, 10.00am-5.00pm weekend

The second in a series of audio / visual installations exploring the voices of objects and the way in which literature is presented and experienced, ‘Part I: Object Network’ was designed by Stevie Ronnie for the digital media art exhibition Render10. Audio recordings of poems are implanted into pieces of redundant technology: A telephone, a musical typewriter and a clock. Each poem is written from the point of view of the object that contains it. The lines of the poems shuffled – both electronically as audio tracks on an MP3 player and physically as a set of printed postcards – generate a unique performance each time the poem is heard or read.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with New Writing North, St Andrews Preservation Trust and Fife Council Community Services
