THE RESURRECTION OF THE BODY From my mixed media collaboration with painter Gaylen Stewart called `Crossing the Boundaries'....from around 1997/8. The original gallery installation(s) consisted of fifteen of his paintings (you can see several in this video) and seven CD players playing tracks of my poetry and soundloops featuring, among other things, fragments of actual birdsong. The CD players were set to `random/shuffle' and they all played at once ......creating a dense `dawn in the forest' moment. The resulting CD from which this track is taken laid out the tracks in sequence, and the packaging included miniature reproductions of Gaylen's art. The poem itself is based on a book of Victorian sermons in which the author speculates about the possibilities of an enriched and greatly expanded sensory range in our `future state.'
