James Day


James Day is a writer from Danmark. During his stay in Listhús, he will follow his interest in the relationship between writing, mastery and helplessness. He will work with a range of media such as etching, photography and interventions in the landscape. Constraint and accident will be important part of his method, as will games such as blind man's buff (where a blindfolded player tries to tag one of the other players). Corresponding with this interest in games, plays with words like palindromes, anagrams, visual rhymes and the misunderstandings these can lead to (for example he mistyped palindrome as plaindrome before correcting it) are likely to be part of the resulting writing. Besides, writing could be interesting as a kind of performance through the video as well.
