Orsini Pattern (Poem)

This Poem is part of the ongoing "Orsini Pattern" project. "Orsini Pattern" is a collection of drawings, poems, music and performance scores and audio-visual work, based on a fragment of industrial embroidering machine pattern from the factories of Sig. Giovanni Orsini. The pattern fragment was originally 'donated' to the FFFO by Alison Knowles during her stay here in Venice in 2006. The pattern was also used as a template for Alison's piece at Giovanni Orsini's Villa Butafava. Just in case you were wondering!
