Conor suggested I try to incorporate some of the text I have into concrete poetry, where the structure of the typography is more important than the content /meaning of the words. Also to start to think about what I might be putting together for the exhibition image wise.

I started to think about how the images could work together with the text in InDesign CC2018. Preview here:

I worked up to this by starting by making a site plan of the Moss, and overlaying it with text

Then I used a plan of the peat bog that I’d edited, and overlaid with text relating to peat

I set out some parallels between peat and clay in a herringbone form, similar to peat stack patterns.
