Constructed to be an art-city in parallel with this city, Parallel City exists like the cities in books- as a continuous entirety and as a collection of vignettes. Discussion around Plato’s allegory of the cave, Italo Calvino’s invisible Venice, and Thomas Pynchon’s bizzaro California transformed in to a conversation about sight, fingers, politics, and ultimately, subjectivity. Parallel City explores the idea of a city as a model for an art show and finds a collection of bodies.
