Love Poems is a collection of occassional works that explores transformations and exchanges of energy. Each close social encounter
or relationship we engage with, has a subtle underwritten psychological contract. Sometimes we barely detect or notice it at first. If we consider this 'contract' deeply, we may see this as being conducted in the currency of engergy - who feeds off who at any given time.
'Psychic Vampires', 'Narcissists', 'Passive Aggressives' are the extreme types of personalites which highlight this. But these processes happen at all subtler levels. Others often channel energy through habit, and as no energy can ever be lost, only transformed, one has the choice to absorb it, deflect it, pass it on, process it, or transform it.
Love Poems is a project that focuses on transforming absorbed negative energy it into something positive through the creative act. The project emerged after a period of writing poetry (1995-2000) and below is the first Love Poem script written at the turn of th century. It was short listed for the Mesh development scheme (Channel 4), but unfortunately did not make the final selection. I hope to one day develop and complete this animation.
