This is a visual book with words.

Branching is a connective process of linear expansion. 
Luggage is carried from place to place. Language, could be considered as a branch of luggage....

In this book photographs of branches have been complicated by language, which is baggage trying to pass as luggage.  
The content packed into this luggage is domestic, scientific and political - nothing is folded neatly, it's all jammed in among  branches, which remain unaffected by it.

Asemic Maps /2018


Maps are both looked at and read – mapping is a language. These are Asemic maps. Asemic writing has no semantic value and involves no codified system of marks: it looks like writing but cannot be conventionally read. These look like maps but the information they carry is oblique.
