Fighting/Dancing Words
Jim Andrews' Kinetic, Concrete Audiovisual Poetry

by Roberto Simanowski

The poem that has drifted from the scene, the computer game that shuts up poetry in the name of poetry, the A Capella as hypertext and "lettristic dance" ... Andrews' kinetic-concrete, audio-visual poetry is an ironic approach to the materiality of text and provides both visual and cognitive pleasure. And as dessert: the metamorphosis of the beast.
