By Kirsty Gunn; Edited by Gail Low
Our everyday senses supply only a small fraction of what we actually perceive-the rest is filled in by what we think we already know, or have learnt from newspapers and magazines, and other media. So how much of our experience is really thought about, felt and reflected upon?
This ground-breaking anthology asks us to consider the space between the known and the unknown, between fact and the imagination, between the external and the internal. In words and images that explore our environment and culture, that reflect on literary and artistic creation, mortality, mental wellness, home and belonging, Imagined Spaces returns the essay to its original activity of having a go, trying and weighing something out, taking a risk.
An exciting and provocative collection that is fun, entertaining, and deeply serious. Join us in the space that follows and be part of an adventure essaying into the unknown…
