Poem media set to video

You Shall Have No Other is a book of poems written as a novel, pared down to a play and presented as web-based movies

A new way of looking at poetry by using different mediums will be discussed by Victoria poet and video artist Dennis Reid this Saturday (Feb. 7) at MediaNet’s Flux Media Art Gallery.

Reid’s work You Shall Have No Other is a book of poems written as a novel, pared down to a play and presented as web-based movies.

Viewers can change the media anyway they like. The reader is the writer, says Reid.

“I have been working the past two years to transform this book of poems into web-based movies, and it is now time to show them to others.”

Reid will show  a selection of the 40 poem-movies.”

The talk is at MediaNet’s Flux Media Art Gallery, 2750 Quadra St., beginning at 2 p.m. Admission is free.
