‘Kandos Trace Garden’ seeks to grow connections between the town’s past, present and future. The artists use a blend of computer algorithms and attentive curation to recombine archives, speech, stories and information from Kandos into an interactive and infinitely generating poem – always different, always changing. Kandos Trace Garden creates a mutable framework through which to discover the memories, language and hopes of Kandos. Readers are invited to load the poem and begin their own exploration of this town’s unique context, one word at a time. Create your own bespoke poem at www.trace.garden. Kandos Trace Garden poems are also pasted up around Kandos, and will feature in C22 Performance Night (Friday 20 May from 7pm, Kandos RSC Club).
Rory Green creates interactive multimedia digital poetry that playfully alchemises language, with a specific interest in multiplicity and the unexpected. By collecting and recombining diverse text sources including pop songs and literary classics, their poetry seeks to unearth and explore novel relations between words and their semantic interpretations.
