Four thematic books created through performative frottage journeys in psycho geography in my local neighbourhoods. Each neighbourhood was charted in an edition of three books, using the city itself as a printing plate. Liminal public and private spaces are brought into focus by the presence of the performer and the memory of that journey is recorded with graphite on handmade paper chosen for characteristics that symbolically reference the neighbourhood and title under examination. The wood covers of each book are also symbolic and feature hand-carved titles. A diary of the performance was published in Slanted magazine, May 2018 edition.
