Slow Magic

I am currently working on a small bookwork, a collaboration of sorts with Nathan Jones, who has been Poet-in-residence at the Bluecoat in Liverpool over the past year. The piece contains his poem, Slow Magic, written about the experience of looking around an exhibition (one of the same name held at the Bluecoat).

Based on a Turkish map fold, the multiple has a screen-printed grey board cover and unfolds, revealing the poem slowly, the creases of the paper acting as illustrations. It’s still very much under-construction (printing tomorrow) but will be available in a limited editon.

The work will be part of
