An Outbreak of Flooding

Struggling beneath the weight of accumulation you buckle in the rains; a surplus of backwash baptising you with the filthy discharge of a thousand vanquished drains. Every street and boulevard fades beneath the waves; thoroughfares gasp for breath, the city’s arteries washed clean until they lead to shallow graves. Inundated …

Lost in the Glow

An image of light pollution

Breaking free from sandy beds you race towards the water’s edge; lunar compass perfectly attuned to the faintest glimmer of starry nights, and the worlds of distance in between. Constellations align, as you cleanse the sands from the sea’s rotting discharge; custodian of the dunes you cruise the coastlines, bearings …

Unearthing the Clay House

An aerial view of site of Por-Bajin

These ancient frozen soils supress secluded secrets, our speculative stratigraphy too coarse to expose the folly of your foundation; panning for timelines that slip through the holes of our weathered chronology. Leafing through trees we count off the years, bypassing the infestations and other anomalies that seek to mask the …

Genetic Unmarking

Beneath empty plaques and unmarked plots, the misplaced dead lie resting. The blankness of their generic monuments a simple sleight of hand: these fragmented piles are lost, but not forgotten.   Combing through ancestral records of digital lives, vibrant patterns emerge: one daughter, arriving premature atop a secluded knoll; two …

Footprints in the Himalayas

The crest above the grassy plains dominates the outlook; its raw-boned peaks threatening to pierce the very fabric of the sky, as beneath its jutting crown mislaid senses of distant lands lie buried beneath the snowpack:   The fabricated whispers of spinning jennies cast as muted echoes in the ice, …

Rewilding Fukushima

After the accident the forest returned, blanketing forsaken machinery in a gentle, unfamiliar embrace. Stacks of contaminated televisions lie in heaps, repurposed as shelters for the returning fauna. Computer screens that once glimmered with potency now lie abandoned, tainted by a film of excrement, and something that we mustn’t name. …

The Inglorious Dangers of Space

Floating between distant horizons, you dance upon a fraying thread; turning somersaults as butterflies threaten to break free from the fragile anchor beneath your flailing feet.   Muscles weaken with your inaction, as brittle bones lose their inhibitions; gliding towards an unseen surface that shimmers forever out of reach against …

Bitcoin’s Shifting Footprint

Clamours of circuits compete to complete composite puzzles that compound their complexity. Assuring the security of their concealed networks as they pan for digital gold; virtual pickaxes and crypto sluices slice through implicit permutations, impervious to the rust and dust of distant placer mining. Straining against the intricacy of their …
