Wridden is a text collage, join(t)ing the concepts of writing and riding using past (was wridden yesterday) and future perfect (will have been wridden tomorrow) tense to reflect on the now of writing and riding (choreographing). The title Wridden also alludes to the Swedish word ‘vriden’; twisted or wringed. The text collage uses twisting, turning and wringing; letters, words, concepts and images. The circle and semicircle, broken circles and double circles, will be used as visual forms to bend the readers eye and the writer’s I. Wridden is a form of writing that simultaneously looks at itself as it is in the midst of becoming, its own past and future, now. Involved is: The rider. The reader. The eye. The writer. The I.
