Back to Imaginative Spaces Home

Back to Enquiry Learning

Jill's doctoral thesis is experimental and commentaries focusing on its features will be progressively written to explore the imaginative possibilities it opens up. The calligraphies unsettle text and visual field, perturb discourse and the figural to open up an in-between~ness between reading and seeing.and play to de-construct "edges", "pages" and "readings" to volume I of the thesis. The calligraphies are adapted from the work of Hassan Massoudy (1997: 33, 37, 43, 61)
