Umami is a very special collaborative remix project between The Lifted Brow and Cordite Poetry Review. Original pieces of poetry and flash fiction were selected by Cordite guest editor Luke Davies, before The Lifted Brow assigned some of our favourite creative minds — visual artists, writers, musicians, architects, programmers, designers and technicians — to remix these originals and produce fourteen new works. Each weekday over the next three weeks we’ll publish a new one of these extraordinary responses on our Umami site.
Today we feature visual artist Jackson Eaton’s remix of a poem by James Renshaw.
Jackson Eaton is a white, 30-something, heterosexual, middle class, cis-male artist currently living in Melbourne, Australia. His concerns include networked photography, artistic labour, mediated subjectivity, post-authenticity, post-privacy, and finding a long-term partner. His work often takes the form of durational performance or photographic or text-based visual image series. Eaton is currently completing a Masters of Fine Art degree at Monash University. His recent project Better Half was featured in Primavera 2013 at the MCA, collected by the Art Gallery of WA, and published by Pearce Press. He is the co-founder of art initiative http://some.center.
