The editorial board (Lauri Hei, Heikki Saure, Tuula Sipilä, Virpi Vairinen), got to explore a wide a range of poetry. We thank for all the proposals! In this set Nokturno presents poetry from following poets:
Volodymyr Bilyk, poet and translator from Ukraine, with visual poetry and a series that draws its inspiration from event scores of Fluxus.
Heidi Halonen, a Finnish writer with a visual poetry series Kasvio addressing different perspectives on plants.
Ilkka-Juhani Takalo-Eskola, a renowned multimedia artist from Finland, with a selection of asemic writing from the series Adae (1964-), curated by Heikki Saure.
Maija Saksman, a Finnish media artist with the video poem Voi!Kukka!
Seppo Renvall, a Finnish artist working with moving image, with a short film Musta, awarded in Helsinki Short Film Festival.
Marko Laihinen, a Finnish poet and performer, with two poetry films.
And last but not least, Nokturno continues to provide free pdf books. From now on Piia Susiluoto‘s Liljalla varpusen vatsa, published by Kolera in 2015, is available at Nokturno.fi.
We also continue transferring material from the old Nokturno.org site to Nokturno.fi. There is already a wide range of poems available, from all kinds of digital poetry to conceptual poetry, from animations to sound and visual poetry etc.
