‘Dead Whale’s Teeth’ – Paul Conneally
Dead Whale’s Teeth is a shreadlines piece.
Shreadlines are created by the artist poet cutting up headlines from a particular publication and putting them into a bag.
Each line of a shreadline piece is written by the artist poet by randomly picking five pieces of cut up headlines from the bag then using three or more of them to construct a new line. Any not used are put back in the bag.
The shreadline process was devised by Paul Conneally in 2000 where he worked with members of the public walking through Loughborough Market to make Easy Mother Expletives.
