Aspects 2019 - "Starlings" Myriorama
This year we have are creating a myriorama, inspired by the words of Belfast poet, Michael Longley’s poem “Starlngs”
A Myrioama translates as a million images. Woking collectively we will create a visual representation of this poem.
You will need to work within the following parameters for this to work.
1.) Select a work, phrase from the poem and complete the online form.
3.) Create an image illustrating the word you have chosen following the template. Any medium.
The work is to be delivered to Boom for Tuesday the 17th September 5pm. Along with the completed online form.
The finished piece is to be A5 portrait, with a horizonline and foreground line included. ( this is so the visual poem males sense when it is put together)
We would love to tell the story of this exhibition, via our social media channels so, please tag us on Facebook (@BoomStudios) and Instagram(@boom.studios) with any works in progress, inspiration.
If you would also like to illustrate do a syncategorematic word ( and, the,a or) just let me know.
Sitting up against a sea wall,
Eating fish and chips,
we count The starlings,
a dozen or so
Unexpected on the shingle.
Shall we throw them leftovers, Dear brother?
Is this Bangor or Ballyholme?
A blink and they attract thousands
And thousands more starlings,
a shape- Shifting bird-cloud, shitlegs
Sky-dancing. No collisions.
Wherever you are, Peter,
Can you spot on your radar
They’re starlings really, Heavenly riffraff flocking
Before they flap down to roost.
