In Greek Καλλιόπη (Calliope) is the muse of epic poetry. Waking Καλλιόπη exists at the nexus between drawing, poetry, information art and webart. As an artwork it aims to free the discursive nature of poetry and the fluid potentials of drawing from convention. 


Brennan and Maipa began collaborating in 2020 with the aim of exploring the edges of poetry. Their collaboration is conducted at geographic distance (Brennan, UK/ Maipa, GR) and involves file sharing and online presentation.

"Jellyfish legs lightning strikes

Diaphanous thoughts dripping inside."

"And speaking into the empty space.
Water running down walls."
