'A Parlay' is the outcome of a project using a single sculpture – ‘Atom Body Was Light,’ 1964, by Liliane Lijn – as the starting point for conversations with 16 different people about art, value and about their own life choices. . Conversation partners for the project included a masseuse, a theoretical physicist, a solicitor and an RE teacher. Their responses were edited and distilled to create a book which is a collection of short texts and typographic visual compositions. The design is influenced by people’s comments and by the aesthetic of Lijn’s original artwork.
