visible cities by digital artist Chris Joseph

We are delighted to announce that London-based digital artist and electronic literature producer Chris Joseph has submitted two remarkably enjoyable contributions.

Baucis addresses the ethereal and mysterious identity of a city which can only be seen once the traveller has climbed “the slender stilts that rise from the ground at a great distance from one another and are lost above the clouds” (Calvino, 1972: 77).

Maurilia, in turn, offers the viewer/reader a much more Argentine stance on Calvino’s Invisible Cities. Deeply rooted in Argentina’s urban/rural contrasts, this Maurilia created by Joseph connects past and present, fiction and reality, London and Buenos Aires.

Note on the author:
