New video poem work with Stephen Emmerson - and offshoot of our Think Pieces. This time a Listen Piece. The title Listening in the Abyss refers to the concept of mise en abyme; the technique of placing a copy of an image within itself. Davies and Emmerson listen to Emma Bennett's works Slideshow Birdshow and Robin, whilst birds sing live on location. In these works Bennett listens and responds to recordings of birdsong; and in her words ends up ‘Talking like a bird talking about a bird’. (The recording Davies and Emmerson are listening to can be found here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Upf7...). Camera - Lucy Harvest Clarke.
