The entire programme runs for approximately fifty minutes and will be repeated later in the afternoon.

The Slow Learning: a video poem for TV, exploring  “the terminal zones of the urban education industry” and “the slow motion of knowledge that’s just about to go fast forward into overwind…”  Presented in various modes  (performance/installation/screening) at the ICA, South Bank Centre & National Review of Live Art.  Texts or audio relating to the work have been published in Poetics Journal, Toxic PoetryCulture Court.

It  relates to  the activities of the Bureau, as well as  prose fiction like “Radial Citizens”, recounting the fate of  a Radial City poet, in BRAND magazine , "Shadowing the City" at The Recusant and "Escape from Radial City" forthcoming  at NthPosition.
