“But despite contemporary assertions that “visual poetry is one of the hallmarks of our age, like jazz and abstract art,”2 it has been largely ignored by the mainstreams of both the literary and visual arts.

GROUND STATES: THE VISUAL CONTEXTS OF bpNichol, Gil McElroy, 2000
#languagestructure was a playful poetic exploration of text messages throughout the time/space of Nocturne and Antigonight in 2O14. Like the letter magnets on a fridge, the public can participate in the narrative by altering phrases and rewording statements that react to location. Viewers were invited to take a photo and tag #languagestructure, thus creating a narrative throughout the night.
