is the collaborative wordsoundart project
of Lynn Harrigan
and Scott M2. Rooted in their poetry -
multi-media projects are in development combining
words, music, paintings, photography, video and fiberart.
Harrigan is a poet, fiber artist and teacher. Her first book of
poetry Moon Sea Crossing (Black Moss Press, 2005) was adapted
for the stage by Fertile Ground Productions and premiered at the 2006
Toronto Fringe Festival. Lynn has recently been exploring visual modes
of poetic expression. Initial experiments with textiles ignited an obsession
with embroidery, which soon became the focus of her artistic practice.
Current projects include Field Guide to Longing; Aqua Reliquia
and Oblique Poetries, a collaboration with Scott M2. Lynn's fiber-art
portfollio resides here.
Scott M2 (Scott
McGregor Moore) is best known as the founder of ambient soundscape project
and as curator of THE
AMBiENT PiNG live music series. Deeply rooted in the concepts of
ambient music, Scott has initiated a series of investigations into the
possibilities of ambient film and related multimedia to induce a slower,
subtler relationship with time and space. Other projects include Muse
Concrète photography/multi-media and Oblique Poetries
wordsoundart with Lynn.

"Rain of Fire is a new multimedia collaboration between
Scott M2 and Lynn Harrigan
that combines poetry, embroidery and ambient video painting to address
of so many during these times of rapid economic change. Created as part
developing Oblique Poetries series, the piece reflects the emotions
of people trapped by
the economic collapse of recent times and the false promises of the
global new world order.
Left exposed and unprotected, there is no solace in the gospels of greed."
