We asked our friend Anton to make a video that touched on the medium of sound and was in some relevant to what we do. This is is what he came up with. 'The IPhone Poet' is a brief snapshot of the life and art of young Copenhagen poet, Caspar, whose blog FRAGMENTER MOD ET KULTURELT ARKIV (FRAGMENTS TOWARDS A CULTURAL ARCHIVE) is the place where he collects his thoughts and poems about everyday life in Copenhagen, popular culture and living in the contemporary technological reality.
Caspar is a young man who has grown up with Facebook, Instagram and IPhones. He poses poignant, pressing and very immediate questions about the reality that this creates and that is what provides a large part of his poetic fuel. In this interview, we see Caspar at a poetry reading, being interviewed in his Copenhagen apartment and riding his bike around the Danish capital.
