Natalie Drajewicz - The Vacant City
The vacant city is a simulated hyper-reality of life - a metropolis populated by the excess machinery deemed necessary for human existence that functions in the void of humanity. The compression of a multiplicity of moments of time into one static impossibility points to the disjuncture of human life often blamed on the city. 'The City' has come to stand for both technological grandeur and the moral decay of people. Human presence is absent, and a moment in the vacant city captures the un-presence.
