Obsession Possession

Obsession Possession – Guillermo Batiz

 

Obsession Possession is a book dedicated ‘To all those moments of not being yourself’. Subtitled ‘A Lilliput Mash-Up’, this collaged collection is pieced together with pages from animal physiology books, bedside stories, magazines and charts. With each cut and copy Batiz re-invents the original text. These new versions tell the tales of forgotten b-sides including, ‘Trapped!: An Interior Monologue by The Man In The Middle’; ‘The Kingpin’; ‘King Truth’ and ‘What It Feels Like to Fall’. What started out as a Sunday with scissors became an obsession, this subliminal subplot is the result.

The Strange

The Strange – visual poetry by Tess Calopedos

 

These visual poems were uncovered and coloured by a student in the Creative Writing course at UNSW. I noticed Tess circling pages after a lecture on the possibilities of visual poetry which included works from Tom Phillips, Ntozake Shange, Shin Yu PaiSandra Huber’s Sleep/Writing/Room, Jas H. Duke, James Stuart’s The Material Poem, and comics poetry by Dino Buzzati, Kenneth Koch, Warren Craghead, Matt Madden, Bianca Stone and Michael Farrell.
