Denmark's Trine Kragelund says Don't Leave the EUOIA

Denmark’s Trine Kragelund (1979-) says Don't Leave the EUOIA (European Union Of Imaginary Authors) or the EU.
The bar stools of Kragelund and Schytte

Trine Kragelund deposits work on a variety of platforms ('like a railway station pigeon', one critic responded). Her work, or versions of it, exist equally as audio, film, video, either online as programmable/interactive media or offline as site-specific installations with quadraphonic sound and hologram icons in occupied and vacated space, which have been exhibited around the globe, as well as framed on the page as codex-works. She eschews the words poet and poetry (and seldom appears in public or performs) and has won many literary and poetry awards. The work here, excerpted from her on-going non-linear textual intervention NoNo, was partly (un)originally sculpted from ‘Google English’, in her words. She lives in Christiania, Copenhagen, where she currently devises post-digital poly-media work and co-habits with the gipsy brewer Carl Schytte. She has recently been invited to collaborate with Sophie Poppmeier (see here).
The Little Mermaids

If Britain votes to leave the EUOIA on 23rd June, Robert Sheppard, the British representative of British imaginary authors, will have to be excluded from his own anthology, EUOIA, which he is conducting and collaboratively writing with other writers; at the very least he will be moved to the Appendices with Frisland’s Hróbjartur Ríkeyjarson af Dvala (whom he created with Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl). To find out more or less about the EUOIA check the EUOIA website which is still live at, and there are multiple posts on the subject of the EUOIA on this blog (use the keyword EUOIA to see them all displayed, and then check).
