“mooon” is another work by Norwegian concrete poet Ottar Ormstad. Here again viewers encounter letter-carpets and a yellow y Ormstad identifies with. The work is based on live video footage shot on a Samsung S4 during travels in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Vilnius and Berlin in 2014. The video may be seen as a research for documenting water on the mooon. Ormstad also continues his multi-lingual project using words from different languages intentionally without translation.

Based on my concrete poetry, I’ve published several books, produced animated video-poems, exhibited darkroom-photography, and graphic art. I love yellow letters, especially y’s that perform to image and music in motion. My works are screened on experimental film festivals and usually premiered in venues devoted to literature in programmable media (also known as digital or electronic literature). Born and lives in Oslo/Norway.
