‘A Newe Booke of Copies’ (2009-10) is a film poem for live performance. It was first shown at University of Cambridge in 2009 and at the Arnolfini in Bristol in May 2010. Published in Film Poems Los Angeles: Les Figues, 2014.
In performance the poem is delivered live in relation to the projected film of a woman making quills. The soundtrack of the film (the sound of quills being cut with knife) is set at a level to produce a level of noise that interferes with the delivery of the text by the performer.
