Astra Papachristodoulou - Labyrinth
Astra is a poet and a Ph.D. student at the University of Surrey with focus in experimental writing and the neo-futurist tradition across poetry, visual art, and performance. She is the author of several pamphlets including Stargazing (Guillemot Press), and her work has been translated into Russian, Slovenian, and Spanish.
Her video showcases the object poem Labyrinth which is based on the classic labyrinth pinball game, where a participant places a metal ball on the board and twists the handles to reach their desired destination without falling into the board holes. The video gives a demonstration on how the poem can be played, as well as demonstrating its details in close-up shots.
