“We don’t have bodies, we are bodies.”

Being Bodies is a year-long creative collaboration put together by supertalented poet/artist Richard Watkins and Shanghai-based poet/yoga teacher Sarah Lowe. I’m flattered to be among a select group of multi-disciplinary creative types involved. We’ll be exploring our physicality through a different body part each month – using art, poetry, tattoos, videos, photography, music, animated gifs and Marmite.

This is what I wrote for the first month’s theme of CHEST. You can see all the work so far here, and there’ll be more appearing each month.
