Recorded

Škocjan, Slovenia. September 2013.

Description

Several times I have visited the beautiful and quite strange environs of Škocjan, Slovenia. It is here that a large underground cave system is carved out by the Reka River. Walking on the surface, I was aware that the earth beneath my feet was hollow.

On this occasion I was a guest of The Golden Boat Poetry Translation Workshop. A furious week developing other poet's texts also included much time for contemplation and development of new work.

This filmpoem is a response to place. It was written and recorded on location, the text read in a pitch black cemetery after midnight, by the light of my phone.

Thanks

Thanks to all at The Golden Boat Poetry Translation Workshop, especially the organisers IA, Iztok Osojnik, and Tatjana Jamnik.
