Being a neighbour is fraught at any time, but in a time when suburbs, states and families are being isolated from one another, it is even harder. As an Australian, being part of an island nation has much impact on how we view our own place in the world, and in this time of reminding myself continually that “no man is an island”, I have turned to this theme for the third and final installment in my video poem series, “And who is my neighbour?”
It’s been a delight to collaborate with Asher Graieg-Morrison who has supplied music for each of these films. Check out his rich and textured work here.
It’s been a big month here. The month started with the digital launch of Les Feuilles Mortes and since then I’ve been busy making videos based around the poems, including an exciting collaboration with musicians Young Weather and Asher Graieg-Morrison. You can see the two video collaborations here. And the latest is that the book is now available in paperback, which means a more affordable edition that sends a larger percentage of the price to TEAR Australia. If you’ve been meaning to buy a copy but haven’t had the chance, you now have three formats to choose from: digital, hardback and paperback. Check it out in the Lulu store, and if you like what you read, please consider writing a review at Lulu to help other people hear about it.
