A short, assemblage-format book exploring contemporary cultural and technological fascinations with the octopus. Cephalopodomania follows the octopus, imitating its mobility and metamorphic nature, as it navigates between encounters with the ‘real-world’ animal and its various representations and applications as a metaphor, a model, and a mythic being.

2019-2020 // graduating project for MA Writing at the Royal College of Art.

Read an excerpt from the project – in which I pay tribute to Disney’s Ursula as a queer cephalopod outsider – at Still Point Journal.
