Coming soon :: Average Kings

Running from Christmas Day to New Years Day I’ll be posting a daily poem/photo collaboration which has been going on for the past three months with writer Nakuru Flamingo.  We have taken a word or phrase every week for the past eight weeks and produced a poem and a photograph that interprets it. The work was totally unseen until yesterday, so we were producing the material in our own space, and interpreting the themes in wonderfully different ways. The aim was to make us both think through how we work, and to produce stories that moved us outside our normal safe zones and make something thoughtful and challenging. We think it was worth waiting for…

The name Average Kings was inspired by a mis-reading of a band name at Sheffield’s O2 Academy, but which has gone on to become a rather interesting theme for the whole piece. Check back on Christmas Day and onwards for the daily reveal.
