Martine Foltier Pugh

Martine Foltier Pugh is a French born Edinburgh based artist who graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with an MA in 2011. Martine's piece 'Spinning Poetry' is one of the interactive exhibits at VAS this year and Freya (my daughter) and many other people and children were enjoying it today. Here is some of the lottery of poems that it threw before us this morning:

'The worm between slithered with learned eyes'

'Gusty fine beach bees'

'lemon eye snakes organised flakes' 

This sculpture has stayed with Freya since we came home and she has cut out pages of random words for us all to pick and piece into poetry. This is a great piece of interactive art and a fantastic literacy tool. Indeed a piece like this was installed at Abby Hill Primary School as part of Martine's weekly visual poetry sessions for Primary 4 and  5 pupils in November 2014.
