Writing_Making contains three projects – A cup is a, A Game of JUG, and concerning roundabouts – undertaken between 2015 and 2019. Each explores skilled production, as an intimate engagement between body, material and site, through experimental combinations of making, language and display.

A Game of JUG is a project that began with an invitation to show in the Pour Me group exhibition at Devon Guild of Craftsmen, Bovey Tracey, Devon (18 March – 7 May 2017). Three jug objects and six image-texts, collectively titled Krug | Cruche | Jarra | Jug (1 litre), were exhibited.

Pour Me image-texts were subsequently shown at the symposium and exhibition Making Beyond Words – Intersections between Text, Image, Display: Celebrating 50 Years of Concrete Poetry, Bath Spa University, Corsham Court, Corsham (16 – 17 June 2017). At the Symposium Wilson gave a talk, titled ‘nadadanada’, on the research context and the influence of Concrete Poetry.

This item contains the Making Beyond Words symposium programme, Wilson's abstract, the list of exhibitors, and the presentation shown as part of Wilson's talk 'nadadanada'.
