by day or star-light
he looked after me
sorted me out
with a good shovel
and a pair of wellingtons
the mean and vulgar
works of man
showed me how to dig
without hurting my back
to lay concrete slabs
write out betting slips
on a bag of cement
life and nature

"What are the Splacists?" was hosted by MADE Birmingham and conceived by Nikki Pugh
A contemporary mode of practice proposed by Paul Conneally.
A new set of ideologies defined by Hannah Nicklin and Nikki Pugh.
A hop, skip and a jump away from phsychogeography and the works of the situationist international.
Think space, place and splice.
Developed empirically by whoever’s interested.

DOT - made during the first Splacist Training Camp Birmingham UK - when something - something visual - some sound - some emotion - rises above the attenuated everyday noise of the city - consider it but only briefly - and give it a mark - here a dot - 1 it's good - 2 it's bearable - 3 it's too noisy.

Textapedia comes from a series of audio/text works where Conneally records / steals audio snippets from academic talks and lectures treating and remixing the audio. Later he takes time to listen and transpose messages and poems as they reveal themselves.
