Per Diem for January 2014: Slip-Realism, Jim Kacian and Alan Summers / The Haiku Foundation

Per Diem for January 2014: Slip-Realism

by JIM KACIAN on JANUARY 1, 2014

Haiku is replete with the quotidian — it is the everyday that is the stuff of our poetry. And yet, what makes it of interest is our perception of it as not ordinary, as, in fact, uncanny. Slip-realism aims to explicate this daily miracle. January Per Diem editor Alan Summers defines it thus:

“Slip-Realism—unearthing the anonymous; avoiding the straightforward; parallel narratives in our day and night lives: new ways of perceiving the real (after Nouveau réalisme).”

He goes on to describe what he’s looking for:

“It’s an approach to focusing on subjects often on the periphery of our vision. It’s also incorporating, where possible, sound as essence; aural landscape; or visual marker, because we are surrounded by soundscape. Think of yourself as just freshly kidnapped, hood over your head, perhaps in the trunk of a car, and you need sound markers to gauge the journey.

Slip-Realism is about the ‘side’ of things, and ‘on the edge’ outside day-to-day life of the mainstream of public life.”
