Thin Cities Etchings


These thin city etchings are inspired by the novel "Invisible Cities" by Italo Calvino in which the explorer Marco Polo is asked by the Emperor Kublai Khan to describe the cities in his Kingdom.  Each city has its own idiosyncratic logic.  In the end, it is possible Marco Polo is just describing one city, Venice, but just looking at the same city from a different perspective.  

Each city etching has it's own internal logic: eg a city of machine pathways; a city of plan rotation via the spikes on mountain tips; a rotating tool city; a city of tool heads in the sky....
