Flaxton had done some work for Race Today, the black magazine coming from Brixton (Darkus Howe) and had the good fortune to be covering a performance by the poet Oku Onuora. Previously Vida had come across the work of musician/composer Gene Lewis whilst making Towards Intuition and noted the ‘cool’ way in which Lewis approached his form. Cool in the sense of hot and cold, intellectual rather than passionate – and yet Oku’s work is specifically passionate. The Gap is a collision of ideas about hot and cold versions of creativity. It is not a critique, rather an appreciation that both forms exist.
