Plassein is a collection of short stories, told through a series of sequential drawings that intertwine to create unsettling, dissonant dreamscapes. The stories observe the forms and textures of the built world and trace their strange, melancholic entanglements.
Set out like a storyboard for a speculative film, with a single frame per page, the images accumulate into fleeting scenes and shifting narratives at once familiar and otherworldly.
