For StAnza’s first ever festival exhibition on Instagram the experiments of Tristan Tzara and William Burroughs were updated to the era of the smartphone and Twitter by Clive Birnie.
Taking random screen grabs of the Twitter app on an iPhone he redacted, erased and painted over them in photo editing apps before posting to Instagram. The enigmatic results have a vein of black humour, and may feature the occasional zombie or cake-eating killer goat. These slides were projected onto the walls in the Byre Theatre cafe and foyer during the StAnza International Poetry Festival in March 2016.
