His Blood, In Search of A Face consists of the eight major screen works from the Poetry for Excitable [Mobile] Media (P.o.E.M.M. Cycle), a series of poems written and designed to be read on touch devices, from large-scale exhibition surfaces to mobile screens. All of the works in the P.o.E.M.M. Cycle engage the question of how we talk to one another, how we locate ourselves in wider cultural geographies, how we authenticate ourselves against our own expectations and that of others, and how matters that are once seen as so vital—so essential—can later be regarded as contingent. www.poemm.net
