In a series of works called Sonnets, individual letters of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s “Sonnets from the Portuguese”, are stacked one on top of each other into small towers. Viewers have to twist and bend their bodies to attempt any reading of the words. Breaking the sonnet away from its strict format of 14 rectilinear lines into wavering columns, the pieces enable words to alter and take new form, while drawing attention to the physicality of the reader.
