...a tribute to creating things.

I guess you would call this a spoken word piece, which was all written, recorded and edited today. However, the footage is from a period between September and December last year, when I was recording a moment every day for a project which lost momentum, so I'm glad I was able to put the footage towards something.

If you're interested, here are the words...

It usually starts with typing,
After the conceiving
Soon designing
Some call it drawing
Scrolling, handling, panning the page
Out comes the blade
Yes, we’re cutting, stainless steel is stealing
Penning and printing
Marking and trimming
Turning the blade that’s sitting
Gliding
Sliding through the paper, acetate and card
Piles up piling
Sticking
Fixing
Mistakes are rubbing
A fancy bit of embossing
Edges deburring
Then
Something to be unwrapping
Checking, inspecting that material for scratches
Seeing if it matches
But then we’re taping
Perhaps gluing
Masking so that we’re hiding,
Meticulous aligning
In the studio
Selecting colours from cans
Rummaging for caps in bags
The notorious shaking
No, I wouldn’t miss out spraying
Squeezing
Centering
Gently tapping
Then full-on smashing
Balance has us wrapping
Folding
Holding
Bubble wrap rolling
Glad to be boxing
Gauging
Twisting
Sitting, now cutting down that filming,
But again, the key is typing
The mouse is mousing,
Checking the list twice, but then, once more again because I keep forgetting
And you don’t stop ticking
Sticking
Hand finishing
Not to mention graphite print numbering
Please, please, please don’t forgot the fancy signature signing
Be consistent now
Do some binning
Avoid the coding
Thumbnailing
Of updating
Dusting
Yes, dusting
Rolling
Capping
Sealed
Weighed
And delivered.
