I'm participating in a poetry event in NSW today from the low carbon comforts of my central Victorian home, courtesy of Skype.
Of course digital culture is fully supported by industrial technics, so I'm not pretending this participation isn't without its pollutions and abuses. And I'm only guessing that my decline to be flown/driven up to participate in person constitutes a lower footprint, in comparison to using all this technology (including a plasma screen at the event end) to beam me up.
Here's the poster that was produced for this gig, in which the Bundanon Trust designer has taken an excerpt from a statement I wrote in 2004 and laid it over a photograph taken by Heidrun Lohr.
My Fellow panel participants are Yvette Holt, Chris Mansell and James Stuart.
