Infantry. Noun. To stocktake in a childish manner.
Artist and songwriter Spencer Wakeling worked in a college circa 2005. “The tea making facilities,” he writes, “were in a store cupboard alongside the photocopier. Every day for about a month I photocopied a random object in the cupboard while I waited for the kettle to boil in the morning. I thought they may be exhibited somehow, someday, but sat in a box for nearly twenty years instead.”
In the same box were some lyrics emailed by Spencer to a colleague as a Freeform writing experiment.
Removed from their original context, the lyrics and the photocopies sort-of work together. So we put them together in this unusual booklet. Not quite an art book and not quite a zine, we found beauty and humour in time-marinated serendipity.
