Some of the titles or descriptions I use are either directly taken from, or based on accounts I encountered in novels, articles, songs or other narrative types. As such, these titles are all examples of ekphrasis; paintings that are about books, books that are about paintings, even songs that are about books, paintings or films. In fact, given the right circumstances, any art may describe any other art, especially if a rhetorical element, standing for the sentiments of the artist when they created their work, is present. Over the past five of six years I have collected over 200 words or sentences that are somehow relevant for the ‘worlds’ I’m building. Either inspired by colours, the behaviour of chemicals or other physical phenomena or by the associations that are conjured by the structures and shapes while working. Although the words come from various sources they are all striking examples of how sometimes beautiful or strange things are described by poetic or strange language.
Since I’m freely borrowing these words and sentences, I figured the least I could is list their source:

Incipitate; The incipit of a text is the first few words of the text or ‘a beginning’
A Portait of the Artist as a Slab of Flesh from City of Saints and Madmen
by Jeff VanderMeer
The Faint smell of Decay from Shriek: an Afterword by Jeff VanderMeer
