Below are the PDF layouts of two text works, Field Notes: Extracts from an Event and Pay Attention to the Footnotes, which have both been commissioned for the publication, The Edge of Europe. Both works offer different responses to aspects of the ANTI festival in Kuopio, which I attended in September and October. Field Notes: Extracts from an Event is a 'partial' report on the ANTI festival seminar, Writing, Language and Site, Kuopio, 2010, which attempts to capture something of 'what was in the air' rather than presenting an accurate account of the seminar proceedings. Pay Attention to the Footnotes presents a series of postcards documented during the timeframe of ANTI festival, Kuopio, Finland 29th September – 3rd October. The documentation attempts to provide a tangential record of the festival, whilst testing a project conceived in relation to urban city space against the site-specificity of Kuopio.
More to follow soon.
