Gary Barwin has rendered a sample from Rhys Farrell & my Lens Flare using the “Depth map to two-sided plane” 3D process on Photoshop and has created a glitch-based digital structure. This blown-out digital rendering imagines the visual poems of Lens Flare as strange buildings – thank you so much Gary!

Rhys Farrell imagines a building in Graniti, Sicily ornamented with our work from LENS FLARE, recently published by Guillemot Press

I’m thrilled to announce the publication of

LENS FLARE, as co-written with Rhys Farrell.

Published by Guillemot Press, available for order for 10GBP

Lens Flare is a collaboration between Derek Beaulieu and Rhys Farrell, based on the visual poetry published in Beaulieu’s Aperture sequence. Beaulieu’s concrete poems engage with dead media (dry-transfer lettering) to create disintegrating logos and letterforms, a crumbling vocabulary of suggestion and memory, and Farrell amplifies these images by adding walls of dynamic colour, pop-coloured panels of dynamism that suggest urban murals, playful geometrics and a day-glo lettristic discotheque.
