on Lou Ham . . .
"Intrigue, incision and intricacy — Hawkins’ controlled and lickety-split ‘Lou Ham’ makes a ticker-tape parade of the cut-up technique"
- Eley Williams
flarffy (Anthropocene) gambols
this proverb keeps
materialist just uprise who one perception teasels loudmouth your patio
a sequence of fondled tercets
daredevil modem, a well-coracled treat
- Rhys Trimble
"This is an incisive body of work. Paul Hawkins has stripped back appropriated text with precision to create a narrative sequence that exposes with ironic finesse the way we squander resources in pursuit of meaningless moments of entertainment and sport.”
- Clive Birnie
Due any day now . . . a new book, Lou Ham: Racing Anthropocene Statements to be published by Dostoyevsky Wannabe. Created initially from radio transcripts between Lewis hamilton & his Mercedes pit crew during the F1 season of 2015-16 & an article by Mike Hulme; Why we disagree about climate change (Carbon Yearbook). The texts then processed by various digital means (Markov Text Generator & the Oulipean N+7 Machine, via The Spoonbill generator) & then cut-up, cut-up, cut-up & edited.
