About

Adnan al-Sayegh (born 1955 in Al-Kufa, Iraq), is one of the most original voices from the generation of Iraqi poets known as the Eighties Movement. His poetry, crafted with elegance, and sharp as an arrowhead, carries an intense passion for freedom love and beauty. Adnan uses his words as a weapon to denounce the devastation of war and the horrors of dictatorship. Cos Chapman (electronic soundscapes) began his working life as an Oceanographer. Throughout this time he experimented extensively with sound, using modified reel-to-reel and self-built devices; after 12 years he went to Lancaster University to study Music, Technology and Theatre. While there he began to pursue his interest in cross art-form collaborations and soundtracks. Douglas Park, U.K based and internationally active visual artist, author (of literary prose and critical essays), as well as exhibition curator (and increasingly all practices combined), delivers a monologue from inside the Dron. Jaime Valtierra‘s work covers the use of different media, from traditional techniques in painting, drawing and etching, to performance, digital media and installation art. His practice is that of an evolving method which generates links between conventional art practice, computer generated graphics and installation art.
