Since 2011, Christopher L G Hill has sustained an open-ended project of twitter poetry. Through fluid yet disciplined haiku-like tweets, a multistanza poem has emerged, described on twitter.com/CLGHill as “a florid poem flailing in reflexivity”. In his artist book tink thank, Christopher L G Hill has translated poetic material crafted according to internet protocols into a form that operates in a non-virtual, printed environment. The result is not an analogue duplication; through addition, subtraction and reformatting of the original poetic content, a new work has been produced that explores the lived nature of expression, impression and introspection.
