Town Crier

Inter-Disciplinary | Cyprus

Artist's work

The project aims to produce a series of paradox sentences (poems) depicted through typography, photography and even digital fabrication, emphasizing on displaced letters, misplaced words and replaced objects, in a way in which they create new meanings.

We aim to challenge ourselves by playing on the theme of displacement in three ways:

  1. Explore each other’s methods in word-play and paradoxical poems production
  2. Look up notions of displacement from dictionaries and produce paradoxical poems
  3. Produce process maps depicting the route that the sentences took to reach their final destination.

In a process where “displaced texts” are born through a highly personal activity, they usually become exhibited for public consumption only in their final form.

We will however aim to “expose” ourselves through the use of bus stop windows, a performing town crier and a short run publication.
