We commissioned four poets to each spend a day inside our immersive exhibition Constructing Spaces, a reconstruction of Scottish poet WS Graham's Cornish cottage. Roy McFarlane blogs here about his experience - read 'Beyond the space', the poem he created in the space.
I become intrigued with the whole notion of space, of walking through a door and walking into an imagined space that the great writer once inhabited. There was something about the creaking floorboard, the rough untidy dreadful table, manuscripts, the digital moving images of the shores of Cornwall, notes and a typewriter that anchored you in time and space; a writer’s time and space. Space was probably the most important thing about this installation and the encapsulation from the outside world.
