The Empty City

I don't like to comment very much on art while I'm experiencing it for the first time, so this will be brief. But I find The Empty City very compelling, for various reasons. It's deeply resonant with some ideas I've had about ecology, non-spaces, hauntology (surely k-punk should like it), illusion, contemplation, the uncanny, and so on and so on. And so on...

The Empty City is a novel that seems to be appearing online under the direction of Berit Ellingsen of Norway. I shall keep exploring it...
