new kinships and symbiotic ties
“What we bloodlessly call ‘place’ is to young children a wild compound of dream, spell, and substance.”
︎ Robert Macfarlane
Plastic Stories explores three childhood events that span and repeat across generations. In the pursuit of a moral beauty, the book offers an understanding of the material flows that exist beyound our own lifetimes; while alluding to modes of operation outside our dominant belief systems. From page-to-page, a measure of time is governed by changes in colour, tone, and texture of word and image.
