Author(s): Leigh Davis; Stephen Bambury

New Zealand Literature | New Zealand

'Nameless/Redux' Is The Last Poetry Work By Leigh Davis, Published Posthumously By Jack Books In April 2013. It Comprises Two Books And A Dvd Sold As A Boxed Set. The First Book, 'Nameless', Was Designed By Arch And Jane Mcdonnell At Inhouse Design With Art Direction By Stephen Bambury, And Printed In 2008. The Second Book, 'Redux', Was Printed In 2013 And Designed By Stephen Bambury With Technical Assistance From Christine Hansen. As These Details Suggest, The Story Behind Nameless/Redux Is A Complex And Unusual One. The First And Larger Of The Two Books Is A Text-Only Volume, Bound In Which Linen, Which Carries 'Nameless', A Long Poetry Work Conceived As A Play In Acts And Scenes. It Was Leigh's Intention To See The Poetry Taken Off The Page, As A Physical Work Installed In Several Rooms Using Projection, Light, Sound And Voices - A Complex Work To Be Interacted With, Rather Than Simply Read. The Second Book, Overall The Same Dimensions, But Softcover And Highly Visual, Is A Companion Piece, Which Acts As Something Of A Blueprint For The Intended Physical Version Of The Work. In The Back Of 'Redux', There Is Also A Dvd Which Carries A 10 Minute Virtual Film Or 'Flythrough' Of This Physical 'Nameless', Also The Recorded Voices Of Michael Hurst And Jennifer Ward-Lealand Reading Scenes From Act Ii Wedding, And Sound By Alastair Galbraith
