The Topography of the Text

The Secret Agent in the Apocalyptic Realm

Memory might be a kind of writing, and I want to consider how the topography of the page, this coming-in-to-being of the thinking/writing might be mapped through erasure, palimpsest and the unreadable line.
Images are from my notebooks, from the palimpsest of Christina Rosetti's poetry and pages from the prison notebooks of my great-grandfather Imam Mustafa Nuri Effendi, kept while he was incarcerated in Kyrenia Castle by the British as an enemy alien during the First World War.
