The first ever collection of contemporary Scottish writing on nature and landscape, Antlers of Water showcases the diversity and radicalism of new Scottish nature writing today. Edited, curated and introduced by the award-winning Kathleen Jamie, and featuring prose, poetry and photography, this inspiring collection takes us from walking to wild swimming, from red deer to pigeons and wasps, from remote islands to back gardens. With contributions from Amy Liptrot, Malachy Tallack, Chitra Ramaswamy, Jim Crumley, Amanda Thomson, Karine Polwart and many more, Antlers of Water urges us to renegotiate our relationship with the more-than-human world, in writing which is by turns celebratory, radical and political.

the road north is a word-map of Scotland, composed by Alec Finlay & Ken Cockburn as they travel through their homeland, guided by the Japanese poet Basho, whose Osu-no-Hosomichi (Narrow Road to the Deep North) is one of the masterpieces of travel literature. Ken and Alec left Edo (Edinburgh) on May 16, 2010 - the very same date that basho and his companion Sora departed in 1689 - and on their return, on May 16, 2011, they published 53 collaborative audio & visual poems describing the landscapes they had seen and the people they had met.

Be My Reader (Paperback, New): Alec Finlay Be My Reader (Paperback, New)
Alec Finlay
R403 Discovery Miles 4 030 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Be My Reader is a trove of texts made and found by Finlay over the past two decades, touching on philosophy, landscape, dance, football, travel and technology. Affectionate, celebratory and vulnerable by turns, it includes such key texts as his popular homage to Robert Creeley 'I Know A Poem', the long poem-mapping of the Wittgenstein Hut in Norway, and poems which emerged from art projects for civic spaces and landscapes, all interspersed with pitch-perfect renderings of off-key phrases overheard and chanced upon. Formally adventurous and restlessly curious, Be My Reader is a unique confluence of contemporary experimental and generative forms together with the lyric voice.

Journey to the Lower World (Paperback): Marcus Coates Journey to the Lower World (Paperback)
Marcus Coates; Edited by Alec Finlay
R856 R708 Discovery Miles 7 080 Save R148 (17%) Out of stock

Cultural Writing. Poetry. Art. Photography. Film. Marcus Coates is setting off on a journey to the Lower World where he will perform a Siberian Yakut shamanic ritual for the residents of Sheil Park, Liverpool. This book tells the story. Edited by Alec Finlay as a "bookscape," JOURNEY features a DVD of Coates' performance, photographs by Nick David and writings by Mark Wallinger and JJ Charlesworth. About Coates' piece, Wallinger writes: "The work treads a fine line between pathos and bathos. It is touching because it has enacted the fears and vulnerability of audience, which are real enough if ultimately unknowable, and finds its own strange way to an image of hope for them to take away."

Specimen Colony (Paperback): Alec Finlay Specimen Colony (Paperback)
Alec Finlay
R815 Discovery Miles 8 150 Out of stock

Produced in collaboration with the Bluecoat Arts Centre, Alec Finlay's Specimen Colony draws on an exhibition of participative public sculpture that creates a series of colourful colonies composed of nest boxes. It acts as a reflection on dwelling and diaspora. A nest box is a functional and familiar object and opened out, its form suggests the schematic figure of a bird. Finlay's work transposes the colours of exotic birds found on foreign postage stamps onto these nest boxes. A project for a City whose emblem is a bird, the work functions as a contemplation on Liverpool's global links through trade and migration. In collecting and collaging postage stamps illustrated with birds, Finlay extends the symbol of migration. Birds have always been emblems of national identity. Postage stamps carry these emblems around the world and it is not surprising that birds appear on over 12,000 specimens, illustrating 3,000 species. Stamps govern communication; correspondence represents the free flow of ideas; letters go between loved ones who are separated; and stamp collecting is one of the most popular ways people discover the world.

Cultural Writing. CD + Booklet. Music. SIREN is the fourth in a series of multimedia projects entitled "bookscapes," created by Scottish artist, poet, and publisher Alec Finlay. SIREN explores sounds created by both humans and their surrounding environment. Collaborating with Chris Watson, Finlay recorded a man and woman simultaneously singing Tim Buckley's "Song to a Sailor" at dawn on two piers in the harbor of a North East English coastal village. SIREN contains the video, photographic, and audio documentation of this event. In this and the other publications in the "bookscapes" series, Finlay strives to shift the reader's focus from the single pages of a book to the open process of reading between word, image, and animation.

Wind Blown Clouds (Hardcover): Alec Finlay Wind Blown Clouds (Hardcover)

R301 R251 Discovery Miles 2 510 Save R50 (17%) Out of stock

Clouds, those magical collections of ice crystals that loom above us, bring out the romantic dreamer in everyone. At once universal and breathtakingly unique, clouds are a constant and subtle presence in all of our lives, ever continuing on their mysterious paths, despite the turmoil on the land below.
In 1999, Scottish multimedia artist Alec Finlay invited people to submit photographs of clouds to an archive he was compiling called the Wind Blown Cloud. The results have been astounding: Hundreds of people from all over the world― young and old, amateurs and professionals― contributed images of their personal skyscapes.
Wind Blown Clouds is a simple and stunning collection of the wind blown cloud, featuring 170 of these works, complemented by a thoughtful selection of haiku and poetry. From small, fluffy, white clouds to roiling masses of cumuli, and from skyscapes and sunsets in silver and gold to more imaginative photos of clouds reflected in puddles, glass, and airplanes, Wind Blown Clouds captures the indefinable brilliance of this inspiring natural phenomenon.
With the brightening of skies after the dark winter months, Wind Blown Clouds is springtime's reclamation of the outdoors, and a beautiful reminder that we are all living under the same sky.

Cultural Writing. Dance. Music. Multimedia. DtArNaCcEe is a field recording of the sounds of the dancers and dance classes performing on location at Dance City, the national dance agency for the North East of England. Most popular styles of the day are represented: from classical ballet and contemporary dance, to the native international traditions--Irish, salsa, flamenco, break dance and even pilates. The sounds were (re)composed into DmAuNsCiEc by Andrew Hodson. "The contact between feet and the floor is the moment of the dance, the constant relationship of gravity, body and earth. The sound of soles and toes beating against or brushing the floor is something that the audience usually only experience as an undertone, concealed by the regular beat of music, as their attention is taken up by the spectacle.. DtArNaCcEe is the sound of the dance: then the wheel turns and the recordings are (re)composed into music and returned to the dancers"--Alec Finlay.
