07/2021 ‘The Blue & Green Project’
At the beginning of first lockdown last year I was invited to participate at ‘The Blue & Green Project’, commissioned by the New Modernist Editing network. Based on Virginia Woolf’s essay ‘Blue & Green’, the project explores methods of communal editing and the ways in which creative response can be used as an expansive form of annotation. The text fragment I picked is: ‚But the hard glass drips on to the marble.‘ So I collected discarded sheets of glass on my walks through town and tried my best.
