William Blake was a visionary English poet and artist who wrote, etched, and printed illuminated books. He despised organised religion, but claimed to see visions of angels and devils, and regularly spoke to the spirit of his dead brother. His Prophetic works were apparently dictated to him by these apparitions.
Albion is an invitation to help Blake complete a new poetic work. Participants can channel Blake using the pentagram and a series of typewriters.
Use the typewriters to help create a new poem by William Blake.
An excerpt from the soundtrack:
Los was created by recording Blake’s ‘Ah Sunflower’ being typed over and over again.
‘Albion’ will be published in 2013 by Like This Press
