Novelette is a monologue voiced by an actor; the narrative is made up of edited quotes taken from recordings of visitor descriptions of shows at Eastside Projects, Birmingham between 2009 and 2011. Although individually the quotes still resonate with certain artworks or shows, through editing they have become abstracted. The process of reduction and abstraction means the observations lose their immediate relationship to the original source and together they take on new, more poetic meanings.
