To buoy my summer along, I have decided to do a “thing-a-day” art project. Day 1 is Thursday 31st May.My theme is The Wild of Words. It’s a loose and spacious topic that will involve snaps of pleasing typography, words I like, favourite excerpts and poems, neologisms and I hope, papercuts, hand-drawn typography and some of my own tiny pieces of new writing. I want to play with words again; to pick them up and feel them and move them around.
Some of my friends are going to join in too and we are going to have a get together at the end to share our favourite pieces. Or, if it is just me, I will force them to come over and listen to my poems and newly-learned words. For hours on end.
