One Month equals Collage

Emmy Horstkamp has an exam to take in June so Storey Tarris and Emmy Horstkamp are taking one month off from the collaboration. The Collage they created during that time period will be used in the series. Poetry and Photography will continue after June 25, 2024.

The series will change a bit from July 2024. Storey will be traveling for a few months so the images used for the collaboration series will no longer focus on the Fire Swamp. The poetry will continue to be based on a morning commute. Since Storey will be traveling and there are no definite plans, the images used will be curated after her return to the UK for the next book in the series.

Emmy Horstkamp and Storey Tarris UK Release Book 3 RAGs

The third book in the collaboration is now online. The book is available in paperback and in Kindle format.

The artists made a change to their work style and decided to edit SINK to make SINK version II so they could collage SINK. RAGs is shorter than expected because of this editorial change. Instead of 12 weeks, the book includes 6.5 weeks.

The collaged version of SINK will be online in June 2024. Here is an image of what the collaged version of SINK will look like:

New Version of Sink on Amazon

The new version of Sink titled Sink Version II is online. We made changes to the first sink and will be uploading an edited version of Sink : Poetry from the Fireswamp in May 2024. The new version of the first book SINK replaces all of the poems with a poem collage. The poems are in Sink Version II which will be the only book with the original poems. The series is now:

Sink: poems from the fireswamp (Being edited to be just artwork) Still online with unedited draft poems.

Sink Version II poems from the fireswamp, a book that has the edited poems and artwork.

Artist Note:

We kept the first book cover and are changing the interior of the book because of some information we read on amazon about editing the interior means we can change the content as long as their is not a drastic change in page number.

The artist Storey Tarris UK and writer Emmy Horstkamp, agreed that since the second version has all of the poems, they could make the first version just artwork using the words from the editing draft. This is an example of what the collages look like:

Collage by Storey Tarris UK of Emmy Horstkamp’s edited words

The collage above was created on April 26, 2024. It is a collage of Emmy Horstkamp’s words and the collage from the day before created by Storey Tarris UK. Storey has two versions of the collages which incorporated not only the book artwork but artwork from the day that She is experiencing when making the collage.

Storey decided to create the collages in this way which requires a timeframe of 8 weeks to make the collages which delays the art edit of the Sink the first book. We will be using the same cover, the only change is in the content of the inside.

The series of collages are called, Collage (day photo and one page of edited work) and The Day After (The collage from the day before and the collage from that day collaged together.). The two collage series will be used inside the red book cover showing train doors. The book of poetry with words is inside the train platform cover.

We unpublished the first version of Sink and will be adding it back on as a collage book in May 2024.

Project Update April 2024

We made some changes in April to our book series so we are editing SINK. 

While editing book II, working title RAGs,  we realised we forgot to do the word count on the poems in book I.

After checking the word count for each poem, we decided to take out the full stops and with the full stops some capital letters and font sizes that were too small or too big.

The images for book one stay the same, but we are moving some pages around and may add one or two images. 

We are keeping the books in A4 format.

March 11 / 2024  Mallords

Storey Tarris Commuter Series March 11, 2024
It's not funny. They watch the mallord walk the railroad rails and sit down to nest.

They talk and watch and feel like they lived life standing still.

"Wait until their dead,"That is their way of life hiding behind the CCTV.

Ravens, let them know that zapping will get them killed. Why did you ignore her this morning as she sat in the danger zone.

Guests, Never Listed / March 7 / 2024

Morning alone on the line
Ringing Zip Zip Zip Zap
Impossible Woman's life
means I mean something.
Excuses scrubbed history,
Starched and pressed thursday
creased down the middle.
