Flax – Photocopier Poems

October 12th, 2017

A xeroxography: ink and quill texts were photocopied and these copies were subject to live photocopier manipulations. This includes moving multiple copied pages whilst the machine is actively copying the work. These pieces were then manipulated using a scalpel and cut into. The fragments of paper were then collaged onto photocopier glass and copied, once the paper is removed from the glass it cannot be re-created. The same photocopier was also used to scan the work, none of these texts have been manipulated digitally.

My sequence of photocopier poems, entitled Flax, have been published in 3:AM Magazine as part of the poem brut series. You can see them online at http://www.3ammagazine.com/3am/poembrut12/
