Helen White

from the soluble colonies series

A note from H. W.: "The soluble colonies evolve, adapt and spread on waste ground and in urban green spaces. Litter attracts them; some survive for weeks, others only for a few hours. Their DNA is the letter combination ‘is’, which occurs in every individual organism in the colonies. They are photographed several times over their lifespan, making the photographic documentation of their existence a time-based poetry."

Helen White was born in Britain and now lives in Ghent, Belgium. Recent publications include a contribution to the anthologies Zieteratuur (Uitgeverij Passage, Groningen, 2010) and Last Vispo (forthcoming), and the poem holding on a poetry poster from Paper Kite Press in 2009.
