photo: Martin G. Wienert (me in London)


No, I wasn't in London last weekend ...

Above you see a photo from last year. But I enjoyed it to follow a conference in London -- via twitter, last Saturday. I thought that it would be a good time for someone who loves short poetry and it really was a good time.

Here more about this conference (Tate Modern, London):

"Shortness
A very short conference and a very long dinner


Saturday 20 June 2009, 14.00–21.30

14.00–17.00 symposium 18.00–21.30 dinner in the East Room"

"In short, this event brings together practitioners and theoreticians of the humanities, arts and sciences to extol or berate, to discuss, explore and explain shortness in all its spatial and temporal manifestations..."

"...The short conference is followed by a long dinner in Tate Modern's East Room. Dinner guests will be entertained by short speeches and the whole event is supplemented by short films, performances and various intervention..."

Thank you very much, Devika!

Sometimes, but not very often, the voice and the words of a person form a picture in my mind which is similar to the reality. Dev found the right description: a Royal picture ;-)

The links are very interesting, though I still don't understand how to involve twitters into a discussion. I think they just showed the messages, didn't they?

A new time of communication overruns the world ... Or does open new doors?

Best wishes
Ralf

Thank you that you have read my little report about this event at Tate Modern, Ralf (and it went on yesterday -- more videos at YouTube).

Twitter-users were asked to send questions (direct twitter-messages to Short_at_Tate)before the discussion started (and during the conference). Questions, remarks (and a giggle from Germany ...)-- we (from outside) could take part in a special way, I do think in an interesting way. And it indeed opens new doors.

Best wishes,
Angelika

There are some places in London which I like very much,Gillena. Tate Britain and Tate Modern are favourite places for me. In 2006 I visited the Kandinsky-exhibition (Tate Modern). It was a breathtaking experience.

Twitter is sometimes interesting, sometimes funny, sometimes strange. Like life ...
Perhaps we meet at twitter, Devika.
