Allan Sutherland is one of the most passionate poets on the disability arts scene and Nancy Willis is a disabledĀ visual artist who has recently been developing her ideas in the moving image and animation (see Nancy’s work on http://www.nancywillis.co.uk/). The two animations presented below are based on ‘The Explorer’, a cycle of transcription poems by Allan Sutherland from the words of Nancy Willis.
