I have always been interested in PHYSICAL iterations of prose and poetry in the public realm. This I call 'spatial poetry', or 'the city as canvas' ('inserting words into the physical fabric of the city or landscape'). Such public interventions can be 2D (eg. Past-Present-Fuchsia' for the Bristol Alliance, 'Europe's longest graphic poem' round the building site for the new Cabot centre project) or 3D as in 'Voices of Heavitree' (my collaboration with Michael Fairfax as part of the £1.5m refurbishing of the Heavitree approach to Exeter)
