A series of illustrations commissioned for the Lyrix Organix x House of Illustration project STEREO/TYPE for Islington WORD Festival 2018. The project culminated in a collaborative book of visual poetry and a live performance with visuals in the House of Illustration’s South Gallery.

The series explores the ways we read an image and how the viewer becomes complicit in the narrative assumptions – through the use of composition, shape and form.
