Loaded Visions

By Antero Alli

— appearing in person


These are original experimental short videos — not videotaped poetry readings — that use poetry as oblique narratives as a way of invoking the spirits dwelling in the texts themselves.  If tribal shamans created content for television, these videopoems might be construed as their brand of commercials.  This is a list of the poems that are used:


Book of Questions  –  (1993; 6 minutes) text by
Pablo Neruda

Cold Force  –  (1994; 4 minutes) text by
Antero Alli

Witch Burning  –  (1998; 4 minutes) text by
Sylvia Plath

A.A. Anti-Philosopher  –  (1999; 4 minutes) text by
Tristan Tzara

Mouvement  –  (2001; 4 minutes) and Fairy  –  (2001; 4 minutes) text by
Arthur Rimbaud

D.U.I.  –  (1991; 8 minutes) and The Word, Weird  –  (1993; 6.5 minutes) text by
