Lockdown commissions

Lockdown commissions

This set of five poems, best seen in sequence, show the arc of lockdown - how we progressed from fear to practicality; from an enjoyment of the benefits of enforced activity to the pleasure to be had from good weather.

Stay safe, by Steve Pottinger: here.

6 feet, by Emma Purshouse:here.

Cats and dogs, by Brenda Read-Brown:here.

I built a shed, by Jonny Fluffypunk (Jon Seagrave). Jon made three versions of his video -

the straight one: here,
the Super-8 effect one: here,
the arty one: here.

The whole of spring, by Fergus McGonigal: here.
