Simon Armitage clears the air...

"My first word, everyone's first word, was air."


'In Praise of Air' Simon Armitage. Installation. from DED ASS on Vimeo.

Next time I'm in Sheffield, in early August, I need to catch up with Simon Armitage's poem which has been placed on the side of a building at the University of Sheffield, just up the hill from the GA in Solly Street.
It's been printed on a material which purifies the air around it, and will stay on the building for a year.

Check out the Catalytic Poetry site for more on this project, and the background to it.
