Absolute Elsewhere is a collaborative text and image project by James Davies and Simon Taylor – collectively known as Joy As Tiresome Vandalism. The latest instalment is online now. Click here to view the whole project.
In 2007, in the space of two weeks, Simon Taylor responded to Scott Thurston’s Matchbox N0. 9, Internal Rhyme, shooting around 12 films. These were then edited down to 150 negatives which became 150 unique gifts in Matchbox No. 9. Matchbox No.9 was just a sample of the collection Internal Rhyme which will be available in 2011 from Shearsman. Other parts of the poem have been published over the last couple of years in various magazines. The links below are to:
