The works of Wade Guyton and Shakespeare are used to explore Photoshop's Content-Aware fill as a vehicle for re-appropriation and narrative construction.

Weaved through the publication are fictional tales and accounts, for which I provided a visual context stylised with reference to the increasing modulation of online features articles. The three sections of the book; B(lue), R(ed) and Y(ellow) follow discrete presentational modes, before constructing and colliding with the responses to a line from Shakespeare's Henry IV "Lord, lord, how this world is given to lying".

Made in the capacity of Creative Director, in collaboration with Indigo Wilde, Kate EM, Rachel Wilson, and with the support of Fintan Calpin and Christian Hill.
