A poetic vision - the Sunshine Coast poetry trail

PRESENTED ON FEB 28, 2018
IN SUNSHINE COAST @ VOL 25

The Sunshine Coast Pente Poets (including Judith Bandidt, Deanne Lister and Lyn Browne) set off on a mission to bring poetry to the people by making it accessible within the local environment. The first year of their grassroots community project saw the poets investigate a variety of Sunshine Coast locations from 'hinterland to headland', exploring innovative ways of embedding poetry in natural, and built environments and writing about what they discovered. A cross-arts sculptural approach has since been used linking the visual arts with the literary arts through the creation of public art pieces with poetry as an intrinsic element.  

The Hinterland Poetry Trail took shape during 2016 and 2017 at three sites. Inspiration for both poetry and sculptures was drawn from the history, heritage and unique environments of the three locations.

Virtual Poetry

BY SERGIO RAMOS
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

Computers have been around for a while now but in some ways they have remained underused. Just like a paint brush can be used to paint a door or to paint a piece of art, the computer has the same duality. Just like the paint brush, the computer requires a skill set to explore its creative and poetic potential. Sergio Ramos discusses how computers allow us to create virtual poetry. When this was realized, preconceived notions of how a computer should be used, have been restricting us from looking into how the computer works and how can one extrapolate its processes.
