Abstract/Summary

'being eaten by a lion' is a spoken word audio recording (7'36") of an extract from: 'Affectation Correspondence’ (2018), a short science-fiction story written using only words contained within 'Frankenstein' (Shelley, 1831). The story is about an underground ‘feelings trader’, and is interspersed with elements of concrete poetry, which serve to reveal the structures of its making (as a form of database narrative). This extract is a reading of one such element from the story. The text is read both vertically and then horizontally, which is how I have performed it here, in a single take. This work was commissioned by ohrenhoch - der Geräuschladen, a Soundgallery for outstanding international Sonic Art in Berlin, Germany, for public broadcast outside of the gallery space during the Covid lockdown of March and April 2021.
