Thing

Anouk De Clercq

publication, 2013, English, 32p

An architect talks about the city he has built. Gradually we realise that the city is imaginary. His account is an attempt to give his ideas a fixed shape. This, in a nutshell, is the story of Thing.

Thing is the first book in the The art of ~scaping series. It accompanies the video Thing. The images in the book are from the video, as is the text, there featured as a monologue.
