“There is a Chris Marker quote, ‘I’ve been world wide a number of occasions, and now solely banality pursuits me’,” Fleming says. “Locations that aren’t on the map and will not ever be. Nicely-kept gardens, ring roads, clusters of an identical homes. Ghouls ten years your senior seeping out of the cracks. They know your title and your habits, drifting underneath the floodlights within the automotive park.”
