Bios - Lynn Harrigan / Scott M2

Lynn Harrigan is a poet, fiber artist and teacher. Her first book of poetry Moon Sea Crossing (Black Moss Press, 2005) was adapted for the stage by Fertile Ground Productions and premiered at the 2006 Toronto Fringe Festival. Lynn has recently been exploring visual modes of poetic expression. Initial experiments with textiles ignited an obsession with embroidery, which soon became the focus of her artistic practice. Current projects include Field Guide to Longing; Aqua Reliquia and Oblique Poetries, a collaboration with Scott M2. Lynn's fiber-art portfollio resides here.

Scott M2 (Scott McGregor Moore) is best known as the founder of ambient soundscape project dreamSTATE and as curator of THE AMBiENT PiNG live music series. Deeply rooted in the concepts of ambient music, Scott has initiated a series of investigations into the possibilities of ambient film and related multimedia to induce a slower, subtler relationship with time and space. Other projects include Muse Concrète photography/multi-media and Oblique Poetries wordsoundart with Lynn.

"Rain of Fire is a new multimedia collaboration between Scott M2 and Lynn Harrigan
that combines poetry, embroidery and ambient video painting to address the vulnerability
of so many during these times of rapid economic change. Created as part of their
developing Oblique Poetries series, the piece reflects the emotions of people trapped by
the economic collapse of recent times and the false promises of the global new world order.
Left exposed and unprotected, there is no solace in the gospels of greed."


Spark and Cascade, two pieces from Oblique Poetries
