‘Flashed, Blinked Away, Passed On’ by Mandy Gibson (FreeSpace 1)

5 Mar

Flashed, Blinked Away, Passed On

.

Welcome to poet and writer Mandy Gibson’s first FreeSpace in which she re-visits a work-in-progress project of hers:

‘This project for ArtiPeeps is the culmination of a larger work, which was to have been a book but has decided it wants to be something more fluid. Loosely titled PinPoint, the plan for the book comprised several dozen micropoems from the welloverthought account accompanied by abstract B&W photography. Nine of these appear in this first ArtiPeeps slot, with the next two slots devoted to the longer pieces written to tie the book together. These are moments in time, flashed, blinked away and passed on.

The book was, and thus this project is, dedicated to the writers of Twitter (members of EV12, and others who work in its strange, tiny feather-lined tentacles). It’s also for the anxious, the brave and the cocoons in between…and for the Nine, without whom my words are just noise.’

Biography

Mandy Gibson is a creator of random things, mostly poems and the odd short story. She has been published twice (in the anthologies TimeLines and Brave the Bullies Together), has been involved in group writing projects (most notably @echovirus12), narrated an album of music based on the writing of Jeff Noon (with UK band The Forgetting Room) and has edited/proofread for fellow writers. She occasionally mutters about the existence of larger work which may see the light of day when she can get her brain to pay attention for five minutes.  You can visit her on Twitter at @welloverthought, or at http://welloverthought.tumblr.com.

Mandy will be back with her next FreeSpace  featuring some of her longer pieces on Thursday 3rd April. Hope to see you there!

Tomorrow we will be featuring  the first pairing from our Loneliness Collaboration featuring poet Stephanie Brennan and artist Deborah Sheehy. Definitely worth coming back for!
