Launching a short piece of fiction and interactive Spiele upon a self-selectedly bored audience, ‘Positive Feedback’ was commissioned for Matt Lomas’ film, lecture and performance series Lange Nacht der Langeweile in Körnerpark, Berlin in December. Also featuring the work of Amos Micah Howe, Will Barrett, Matt Lomas and others, it was a moment to interrogate YAWNING and APATHY alongside discussions of Heidegger and one-sided table-tennis. Your turn.
Hopefully more to come from such quarters; further information about the event may be found here: langenachtderlangeweile.wordpress.com
In terms of having a mouth and ears, but not necessarily in that order, it was great to do some reading and listening at the Interrobang festival earlier this month in Clerkenwell, organised by those merry-makers at Annexe magazine. They had branded beer, book-making, sympathetic faces and a good share of rollicking.
Special thanks to Nick Murray for making warm-welcomes look easy; read more about participants and powers-that-be here, and here’s to next year’s shindig.
