There's a moment, a flash, when the poem ceases to exist solely as written word, but rather transcends to become a visual and aural medium. I remember vividly that moment when "I=Zero" transcended.
There wouldn't be a 50 words project without Mark Kozub. Without his insistence that this was a project worth doing, without his support, without his encouragement over sushi at the local Mikado, none of this would be. Thank you.
MARK KOZUB is: a) author of Weird Edmonton, b) one of the founding members of Edmonton’s Raving Poets, c) a bassist/saxophonist/noodler-of-synthesizers, d) an ex-“radio guy” and e) a cartoon artist and painter.
This video is one of several video collaborations with his co-conspirator Randall Edwards (check out the weirdness of When I Was a Kid, which aired on CBC-TV).
I = Zero is part of the new bachelor, a web project Mark plans to unveil at the end of 2014.
