The scene is taking place within a shop, within a shopping centre. The scene will involve body, sound, sculpture, text and voice. Behind the scene a relationship with a seagull is formed.
So I open my mouth and you look inside. It is enlarged now and easy to follow the arrowed path down to the heart. You reach it's beat. The Vena cava is stretched at length. It has darkened.
The aorta, a distant throb, a distilled ripple. The landscape is forming, between the mouth and the heart. It grows at its own pace and is measured in colour. The mouth makes noise. This noise, a fuzz of sound causes light to freeze around objects. We become poetry. We become beat.
We become beat poets.

For this month's FORUM we will be indulging in some post-work relaxation. Please bring a PILLOW or something to rest your head on as we lie back and take in relaxing audio to restore us before taking part in a digital life drawing session. A LAPTOP COMPUTER that can access the internet via WIFI will be useful for this part of the session.
FORUM is a platform for early career artists, practitioners and graduates to talk about issues surrounding contemporary practice in a relaxed and informal setting.
