visual poetry

Our internet connection is so bad it has taken me all day to upload images.. grr.
Last night I went to see some friends play music in a confused club (Joel has pictures on his journal), was sat upon by a girl in sparkly underpants and accused of being bookish by a woman in a corset and a monster mask. I think I had a good time.

I meant to put these up a little while ago.. they are Shaker visual poems, produced in a similar way to automatic writing and considered gifts from heavenly spirits.

They remind me a bit of Adolf Wölfli's work. More examples and information can be found on UbuWeb, which also has recordings of adaptations of Wölfli's musical works here, along with an amazing archive of sound recordings.

Oh, and some friends received a well deserved 4-star write up in the Guardian today. Congratulations!
