The city is haunted by traces of what came before. The past leaves a material residue, but sometimes little else. Absences and voids litter the landscape, fading photographs are all that remain of places which no longer exist, or have transformed beyond recognition - strange sounds hang in the ether. The fragments that are left behind are no longer part of any meaningful narrative, they no longer make a coherent picture. They are not memories anymore, but something else. Confronted with these remnants the imaginary is activated. We are driven to try and make sense of this detritus. We fill in the gaps with stories, myths, ghosts, hauntings - but the real spectrality lies in the affect of loss, and the uncanny afterlife of the absent, gifted by recorded media.. >>NEXT
