2 from theia claude




"These 2 pieces are part of a yet untitled project. I am heavily influenced by dadaism and am exploring the possibilities of merging dadaist poetry and photography together to make a single art. I am originally from Milan creating in Canada."

Richard Barrett is a Salford based poet currently undertaking a practice based research project into queuing. That is, the development of queuing; an anatomisation of queuing; the role of queuing in contemporary life; and what lessons can be learned from queuing. Completion of the project is expected to occur Summer 2014 with simultaneous publication of findings and a gallery installation . Please follow Richard's progress over at his notebook blog set-up to document the project as it unfolds http://richardbarrett4.tumblr.com/. Anyone wishing to take part in the project would be very welcome. Please contact Richard at barrett dot richard one at googlemail dot com
