Neat strait lines of tiny, human-like, figures pour on to an empty digital canvas. The rows stack up, forming buildings. The buildings stack up and a cityscape grows until reaching a point of total saturation, only for the process to repeat in a seemingly never-ending loop. Following the mantric singing of a temple bell, the clumsy, imperfect trace of the hand-drawn lines try to impose a sense of humanity on a sterile, planned and micro-managed setting. This revolt of the organic is, as tends to be the case, embraced, suffocated and incorporated to the relentless force of progress.
