Objections, Scars & Artefacts is an investigation into the material culture that has surrounded the author since childhood.

Physical manifestations of creative energy such as fashion, architecture, tools and cuisine are observed. With a keen eye on the details of human creativity, the poet breaks down culture into its other microcultural aspects and explores connections to expressive culture (drawing on visual art, music, and literature); reflective culture (encompassing philosophy, knowledge, and belief) and societal culture (the creation and modelling of family patterns, political culture, and rituals).

Moss also considers how he, and other marginalised voices have been objectified as targets of ‘otherness’. The poet objects to these limiting paradigms and in rich dramatic, lyrical and narrative form reverses the gaze.

The lasting impact or scars of symbols are explored, and powerful uplifting alternatives are offered.
