A Curious Gang of Roving Persons
Host: Bridget Quinn
Hyperart: Thomasson was a nice follow up after the Situationist International Manifesto and Invisible Cities. It has a similar playfulness and the engages the idea of imagined histories/ narratives embedded in landscape. Stylistically I was drawn to it because its so conversational and not very academic. Spencer mentioned that the style of the writing was wanderesque, which seemed fitting. Everyone observed that as the book progressed the strict definition of a Thomasson seemed to loosen up (along with the tone of the writing). This meeting was structured as a guided wander… I had a couple stops in mind, and we hit up the derelict flower shop on a whim.

The Ramp to Nowhere
I have long been fascinated by stairways that lead up to buildings that no longer exist.
