Aibohphobia

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'Aibohphobia'. The project description reads, "In this work for the Gallery Bunker, Morison plays with 'abyssal' patterns, which appear to describe a dizzying recession into visual space or a protrusion from it. The sense of visual vertigo is heightened by Morison's use of 'hi-vis green', a colour associated with the earthquake recovery teams that occupied the Gallery. Finally the title alludes to the way the two sides of this design reverse or invert each other, so that the relationship between positive and negative space constantly twists and flips. 'Aibohphobia' is the fear of palindromes, which are words that say the same thing when read in reverse. The word itself is, naturally, a palindrome. [Justin Paton]".
