Red Eye Poster

From the Test Centre newsletter:

Ahead of the publication of Iain Sinclair’s book-length poem RED EYE in October, Test Centre have produced a limited edition of 15 posters. Specially designed by Traven T. Croves, the poster consists of an image and text screenprinted on the card press sheets for RED EYE’s promotional flyers. It uses images taken from Iain’s early film Maggot Street, along with an extract from the poem and a short description of the text’s history and resurrection. Each poster is signed and numbered, and features additional holographic material by Iain.

A lost foolscap typescript until its recent unearthing, the long poem RED EYE was written in 1973 for publication by Sinclair’s Albion Village Press the following year. Set aside to accommodate other books from the press, and pushed aside by darker forces, RED EYE is now revealed to be pivotal between Sinclair’s early, locally based texts and the larger, more mythic structures of Lud Heat. Indeed RED EYE has developed its own mythology among Sinclair’s followers, and its publication is an exciting act of archaeology.

Comprised of stylistically and thematically different sections, in its documentation of daily domestic life RED EYE functions in parallel to Sinclair’s diary filming of late-1960s Hackney life, whilst its literal and poetical topographic journeys outward mirror the experimentation of Maggot Street. The text of RED EYE receives its emotional equivalent in colour stills from these films, not to illustrate but to present a subconsciously connected film script, a series of alternate ‘books’.
