So proud to have been given the opportunity to contribute my thoughts to this extraordinary body of work, tracking the development of two innovative and inspiring videopoets, 🙂 who are also helping to change the way we think about and value this precious planet. Sarah x
VIDEOPOETRY, a book project
Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel H. Dugas have been creating videopoems since the mid and later 1980’s. Their individual and collaborative works are comprised of stand-alone works, i.e. for one channel screening; as well as multi-channel selections intended for gallery installation. This videopoetry collection will feature still images and texts from 120 works as well as essays outlining the authors’ philosophies within the genre of this creative medium. Most of the works featured have been shown in festivals and galleries in various locations around the world but the publication will be the first document to contextualize the content of these works as a whole.
Videopoets and scholars, Lucy English and Sarah Tremlett, have authored an introduction to the collection and a breakdown of several aspects of this body of work.
This project is supported by the New Brunswick Arts Board
