Chewing Gum on Central Line
a dictionary-poem (2019)
letterpress print on paper A4, process documentation
Letterpress printing is a typographic method known for being invented by Johannes Gutenberg in the 15th century, an iconic way of producing printed text. Words are spelled out letter by letter with steel type, to form a block that is dissasembled after the print is done, making the printed copies limited to the session. Letterpress printing is a craft process that honours time, corrections and the action of thinking twice, many times over, to assert what one has to say.
The printed poem Chewing Gum on Central Line was displayed at the exhibition Exploded Stories, London 2019.
