Seeking Orwell 1984 Fans

Hello,

My name is Margaret Noble and I am an artist and teacher who works in media art. I am writing to share a project I am developing which is inspired by an old vinyl recording of Orwell's novel 1984. As an artist who uses samples and media, I have found Orwell's text and today's media to be fertile ground for artistic expression. I am weaving together a new experimental radio work that is a musical narrative retelling.

I am writing to introduce the project, find support for this work and to spread the word. The work connects strongly with human rights and will benefit Amnesty International.

Although this note may appear a bit "spammish," I invite you to take a look and see what you think. The work supports human rights, new contemporary art and the continuation of Orwell's message.

Please take a look by searching in Google:

"Margaret Noble George Orwell"


Thanks for reading!!! I hope to hear from you!!!

Sincerely,

Margaret

Hi Margaret and welcome to MR.

You can post another invitation as beppe suggested, or in the Lounge. And include the link to the site in your post. Makes it much easier for us to look it up ;-)

Good to have your company, Margaret. I've read every word of Orwell's gosh knows how many times, so your project seems pretty fascinating to me. Must take a look. By the way, have you read Christopher Hitchens' book on Orwell? Quite superb.

I was lucky as a kid to get to know the librarian at my local library (an amazing chap called Carlton Melling) who helped Orwell with research on his scathing *The Road to Wigan Pier*.

Good luck and best wishes. Neil

PS: The opening line of *1984* must rate as one of the greatest intros of all time: It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.

Didn't know about him, will try to get the book. I found a BBC Interview, of 24 June 2002 in:

There is another promo of this project that previews an additional track which is made from surveillance cameras, commercials and news reports on the international public radio site, Art On Air.
