Get #Gibberese!

Reykjavík artist hits Queensland this month

Published August 17, 2012

Ever wondered how languages relate to the environments in which they’re uttered? Do you tweet? Interested in donating your twitter space and time to an international text performance that explores linguistic ecosystems? Then you’re invited to participate in #gibberese.

I’m a Reykjavík-based interdisciplinary artist, and on Saturday August 25th I will debut a new work at the Queensland Poetry Festival in Brisbane, Australia. This work will include a live collaboration on Twitter (projected during my performance) by text enthusiasts around the globe. Your participation would last for just over an hour (corresponding with 19:30 to 20:45 Brisbane time… which is 9:30 to 10:45 Reykjavík time… or you do the math if you live elsewhere). If this squeaks your squirrel, e-mail me (anarcheologia@gmail.com) for more info.

angela rawlings is the 2012 Queensland Poet-in-Residence and the author of ‘Wide slumber for lepidopterists.’ Her work in Australia continues development of Sound Poetry and Visual Poetry, a project with an Icelandic series and now an Australian series. For information on angela’s residency, check out http://qldpir.tumblr.com.

The photo included here is from the Australian series.
