passing places

Wednesday 5 April 2006

Travelling forwards, and looking back.

I recently took some images of the fenland landscape through a train window which prompted a visual poem. Another journey beckons as I have had work accepted for the Eastern Open ’06 art exhibition in King’s Lynn. The quiet reflection afforded by train journeys is inspiring in its own way, silent landscapes flickering by, like watching a grainy film…

A view from a train, made into a short animated poem [below].

[passing places]

passing places
shuffling through
a thousand stillnesses
fast flickering by
gathering in speed
in the blinking of eyes
framing the memory
