RICHARD KOSTELANEZ shows again
VIDEO POEMS & VIDEO STORIES,
whose content is exclusively kinetic words (edited at the Institute of Electronic Arts at Alfred, NY),
on the large projection screen at the Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery, just north of Houston St, west side
of the street, on Sunday 27 November, at 8:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. True to their unprecedented titles, these
camera-less syntheses are unlike anything you've seen/read before, as the latest development in my writing
for media—audio, video, film, holography, computer, etc.
As the 99 parts on each of these DVDs can only be randomly accessed (itself a state-of-the-art innovation),
each has no fixed length. The Poems & Stories simply come one after another. I'll feature the POEMS for the
first hour and the STORIES for the second hour. As these VIDEO POEMS and VIDEO STORIES have no sound, expect
to celebrate SundayAfterThanksgiving with me, each other, and your cellphone favorites. The tapes are free,
as am I, but for food and drink the Bowery Poetry Club will extract its customary charges.
