An excerpt from the manuscript books of False Memory has just been published in the new issue of Ekleksographia online magazine William Blake and the Naked Teaparty guest edited by Philip Davenport. The issue features textworks that emphasise touch - handwritten and haptic – particularly pieces that consider emotional engagements, and corporate or military erasure of the handmade, the human, the not-digital.
These qualities link into the alternative tradition of poetics - and to 'outsider' artists who are owed a debt by the experimenters (an IOU all the way back to Will Blake, he and the Mrs sitting on the lawn in London afternoons, naked, drinking tea).
