Over thirty-five collaborations with visual artists since 1990 have seen poems carved in wood and stone, cast in metal, etched on glass, painted on canvas, woven into embroidery and printed on enamel. One was written on the quilt of a big brass bed under Grey’s Monument in Newcastle. Another is now available if you’re walking in the Peak District via a QR code (with Alec Finlay – see www.whitepeak-darkpeak.co.uk). I am fascinated by what happens to words when they meet another medium, the effect of another artist’s practice on a poet’s and how the result might find its way in the wider world.
