Coin Opera 2:
Super Treasure Arcade
Poetry and play.
Because play has ever been the revitalising element of poetry, and because video gaming is now one of the richest imaginative realms in contemporary culture, the two are a natural fit. But more than that – the body of work of gamer-poets is the perfect accompaniment to a diet of (or experimental course in) gaming, the two mediums flavouring each other by turns.
Join the steadily growing audience for a new kind of artistic fusion.
Poems at play with the field of electronic gaming, consisting of pastiche (Doom / Ted Hughes), concrete verse (Space Invaders), voice-mimicry (Portal) and others.
COIN OPERA 2: FULMINARE'S REVENGE
In the manner of arcade sequels, explosively bigger and brasher than the first Coin Opera. Formal play, genre play, two-player poems, mega-sized boss poems and more.
SUPER TREASURE ARCADE
A tightly formatted micro-poem for a game for every year from 1971 to 2014, lavishly designed. Available as a free pdf.
