on bondage is an experimental collaboration incorporating a romance of alter egos against the backdrop of the Great London Exhibition of 1851, the unbound aphorism, and disrupted ideas of gender.

From the epigraph:

“He hated to think that she should know any joy that had not its beginning and its end with him. It took her from him. As long as it lasted he was faced with an incomprehensible and monstrous rivalry.
And as a man might leave a woman to his uninteresting rival in the certainty that she will be bored and presently return to him, Rowcliffe left Gwenda to the earth and moon. He sulked and was silent.

Then, suddenly, he made up his mind.”

~ May Sinclair, ‘The Three Sisters
