One of the off-shoots from the Residency at the Roman Museum in Canterbury was a commission by the Corinium Museum in Cirencester. I wrote this piece about a famous and beautiful artefact – the Cirencester Cockerel. Lloyd Bosworth, the Technician at the School of European Culture and Languages department at the University of Kent, has scanned the object and set my poem over the top of an animation. Check it out below!
My work at Canterbury Roman Museum is coming to a close, and I’m busy finishing up the poems I’ve written over the course of the project. I’ll be turning them into a downloadable audio tour of the museum, and hopefully a short pamphlet too.
In the meantime, I’ve been working with the Corinium Museum in Cirencester, who commissioned me to write in response to their ‘Food for Thought’ exhibition – including one about this fine cockerel found in Cirencester! Check out the new poems here.
