Nature's Words: Sample Poems & Audio-visual
'Greenspin, a video-poem made with multi-talented film-maker Howard Vause, which exposes the language of corporate advertising and ‘greenwashing’, won 3rd prize in the Liberated Words International Poetry Film Festival in 2013.
Howard and Helen have since collaborated in making other poetry films, some as commissions. Here is a selection:
Kali Exorcism, inspired by the tradition of exorcism in Beat poetry, this video-poem deploys text, sound and imagery to invoke the purgative energies of Kali so as to cleanse the world of the military-industrial complex and the state of perpetual warfare that the system requires.
The Golden Bird, commisisoned as part of The Golden Bird Project, which invited patients on the Royal United Hospital Older People’s Units in Bath to take part in a series of interactive storytelling workshops with Helen and Howard.
