Chewing Gum on Central Line
            a dictionary-poem (2019)
          letterpress print on paper, A4

An exploration of narrative and definitions of reality and imagination, crafted letter by letter.
Letterpress printing is a typographic method in which ink is spread on to a plate with raised type, that is pressed against paper sheet to leave a direct impression. The method was invented by Johannes Gutenberg in the 15th century and is an iconic way of producing printed text. It is common that the words are spelled out letter by letter with steel type, to form a block that is dissasembled after the print is done, making the copies limited to the session.

The printed poem Chewing Gum on Central Line was displayed at the exhibition Exploded Stories, London 2019.
