Personal profile

London-based poet and critic with an interest in prosody, species theory, avant garde verse, digital games, gender theory and the overlap between art, literature and astrophysics.

My practice-based thesis is a rewrite and recollection of the Golden Record - a repository of images and sounds carried by the space probe Voyager 1, which recently became the first man-made artefact to enter interstellar space. Drawing on prosody’s capacity to disrupt and subvert “everyday” or normative modes of utterance, it will critique the values and narratives that underpin the selection and arrangement of material for the original Record, consider how such a memorial work might apply to today's culture and technology, and explore how the Record's implicit status as alien object might serve in turn as a basis for the reinvention of poetic practice.
