slow simmered

For slow simmered, I used a page of Laurie Lee’s As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning describing another time of uncertainty in Europe with the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War.

Lee’s writing often uses alliteration and on page 214 I found many words beginning with S, enough to exactly re-present them as the first ten stages of the Fibonacci sequence: 0, 1,1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34.

The words remain in place on the page, growing and dwindling in a sequence that creates a kind of poetry and an understanding of how Lee builds the story of the burning of the church. slow simmered was originally shown as a printed piece and I intend to produce a loose leaf boxed book version in the future.
