I’m thrilled to announce that Wordfest 2011 is augmenting my appearance at the festival in support of Seen of the Crime by projecting Prose of the Trans-Canada on the side of the Calgary Tower for the duration of the festival:

derek beaulieu’s work is consistently praised as some of the most radical and challenging contemporary Canadian writing. A towering moment in beaulieu’s on-going exploration of letraset as a medium for concrete poetry, Prose of the Trans-Canada, will be on display, after dark, as an “illuminated light sculpture” on the façade of the Calgary Tower from October 11–14. Rising over 20 metres, the visual poem will illuminate the Calgary Tower and provide a new platform for this cutting-edge artist.
