Abstract

Saft Lol vividly tells a story in exactly 500 words. Two lonely men discuss the loss of a friend. The format is that of a play / script and the piece is written as if we are over hearing a personal but everyday conversation between two people. The two men's relationship to their lost friend is teased out through their colourful banter Flash 500 is a distinctive anthology by artists who use words and writing as part of their work. Thirty-two artists were invited to write 500 words with no other restriction in content or form. The wide-ranging collection includes stories, poems, plays, song lyrics, diary entries, real-life experiences, recipes, letters and fantastical narratives. Flash 500 Edited by Jeremy Akerman and Eileen Daly Akerman Daly, 2015 74pp, softback 21 x 14.8 cm ISBN 978 0 9930181 2 1 Original design by OS-B additional design by Marion Guérineau Artists taking part: Dorothy Cross George Shaw Charlotte Young Simon Bill Daniela Cascella Giorgio Sadotti Pamela Golden Fiona Banner Maria Zahle Brian Catling Edward Allington Simon Faithfull Paul Rooney Timothy Hyman Mikey Cuddihy Paul Becker Susan Finlay Jason Dungan Fabian Peake Richard Billingham Francesco Pedraglio Brighid Lowe Georgia Hayes Jason Coburn Simon Bill Patrick Coyle Audrey Reynolds Paul Hamlyn Milly Thompson Sue Tompkins Jeffrey Dennis Jess Flood-Paddock Siôn Parkinson
