          You know the Poetry in Motion on the train? The lights flashed and dimmed. The train shuddered. And the words flickered on and off.

            You know when you are sitting on the train and the Poetry in Motion catches your eye and for some reason it sticks with you? This particular poem stuck with me. The juddering is because I was staring at it on the 2 train as it went around the bend from Brooklyn to Manhattan.

              I met the Bishop on the road And much said he and I. 'Those breasts are flat and fallen now, Those veins must soon be dry; Live in a heavenly mansion, Not in some foul sty.' 'Fair and foul are near of kin, And fair needs foul,' I cried. 'My friends are gone, but that's a truth Nor grave nor bed denied, Learned in bodily lowliness And in the heart's pride. 'A woman can be proud and stiff When on love intent; But Love has pitched his mansion in The place of excrement; For nothing can be sole or whole That has not been rent.' -------- JOANA LA BOJA PARLA AMB EL BISBE (versió catalana de Josep Porcar) Em vaig topar el bisbe, de camí, i molt, ell i jo, havíem de parlar. ‘Ara tens tous i caiguts aquests pits, aviat les venes se t’assecaran, malda per viure en un casal bonic i no en una porquera repugnant’. ‘Emparentats, el fàstic i l’encant van sempre de la mà’, li vaig cridar. ‘Marxaren els amics, però és veritat, mai no em van negar el llit ni la tomba, perquè de cos i cor ensinistrats ells varen nedar i guardar la roba. ‘Una dona pot ser altiva i formal quan en l’amor posa la seua fe; però l’amor ha alçat el seu casal en el lloc de l’excrement; perquè res no pot ser íntegre i sa si abans no ha patit cap crebantament’.

                This video provides a short overview from the recent exhibition Aperture - Where The Light Gets In The exhibition features three video installations - 'where the use of space within the narrative is as a key element' Drift is a two-channel installation. Both videos are projected in close proximity to each other in order to suggest an analogy between them. Though these films might be interpreted in different ways there is an inescapable and profound sense of sadness present in both. Both videos portray a young woman in a red gown drifting or floating though two very different environments. The representation of the young woman in the red dress, the places that surround her, the visuals and the sound suggest an emotional landscape in which she is lost. While there are many different elements and processes involved in the physical making of the work this is also true of the ideas and inspiration behind the piece. It was initially inspired by an earlier video of a man filmed drifting and plunging fully clothed in the open water off the atlantic ocean. This piece by contrast depicts a young woman drifting through the interior landscape of an old Georgian house. While the second video shows the same young woman drifting through water and also paradoxically across the surface of three victorian christening gowns. Wood From the Trees is a video installation that is contained within an old mahogany display cabinet. This piece is created in direct response to the historical site in Coole Park where Lady Gregory and many of Irelands literary greats including Yeats frequented.

                  Wood From The Trees shows several scenes from the historical woodlands in Coole Park. A line of silver birch trees appear to stand quite still, betraying only the slightest hint of movement when their branches are caught on a gentle wind. The limbs bare and green and heavy in summer sway rhythmically from side to side and possess an illusion of depth that pulls the viewer in.

                  • Patricia Pearson discusses "Opening Heaven's Door" - April 26 2014


                    from OTTAWA INTL WRITERS FESTIVAL / Added

                    Last spring award-winning journalist Patricia Pearson sat down with us to discuss the widespread and underreported phenomenon of receiving consoling messages and visions from people who have recently died—before the news of death has even been sent. She talks with host Neil Wilson about why discussing these topics in important, why we are afraid of"woo woo" topics and we should interpret these experience. Science may be unable to “prove” that there is life (or something else) after death, but countless people continue to experience these unexplained coincidences when a loved one dies, while others experience such visions while they are dying themselves. Prompted by her family’s surprising, profound experiences around the deaths of her father and her sister, the hyper-rational Pearson sets out on an open-minded inquiry and discovers that roughly half of bereaved persons—as well as nurses, hospice workers, soldiers, and others who constantly observe the dying—have had uncanny, transcendent experiences. These intimations of enduring bonds can radically help people process their grief and their fear. Her new book, Opening Heaven’s Door recounts deeply affecting stories of messages from the dying and the dead in a fascinating work of investigative journalism, pointing to new scientific explanations that give these luminous moments the importance felt by those who experience them. Patricia Pearson is an award-winning journalist and novelist whose work has appeared in The New Yorker, the New York Times, Huffington Post and Businessweek, among other publications. She is the author of 5 books, and was a long-time member of USA Today’s Op-Ed Board of Contributors. She also directed the research for the 2009 History Channel documentary, The Science of the Soul. Known for upending conventional wisdom, Pearson’s first book, When She Was Bad, questioning our simplistic understanding of violent women, won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Non-Fiction Crime Book of 1997. Her most recent book, A Brief History of Anxiety (Yours and Mine), challenged the notion that mood disorders are purely brain-based, with no relationship to culture and personal circumstance.
