Cannibal O

Chapbook: 12.5 x 18.7cm, 18 pages risograph printed and saddle stitched.

A typeface narrative revolving around an I, a pair of ravenous eyes, a mouth, and a peptic ulcer called O. In the story I is pursued by O through a series of narrative passages set inside the oral cavity and the digestive tract. This internal narrative is interrupted by a second story – set outside the body – where I’s voracious eyes binge ready and her fingers obsessively munch on texts. As the narrative progresses the body break downs, fuelling an interior cannibalism where hierarchies, temporalities, and words lose their structure. The story utilizes narrative as a digestive approach towards research and a means of traversing behavioural obsessions.
