Poppy Jones-Little: What is a ‘lump’?
With a focus upon ‘lumps’, Poppy hopes to draw your attention to words which might slip in without clear intention. She states: ‘Lump” reminds me just how crucial deep and active listening is – the importance of distinguishing something from nothing, of being hyper-aware not only of sound or speech but the noise which surrounds it. I think it is essential to pick apart words or phrases that we use in passing, and consider what we are really paying reference to.’
