An architect talks about the city he has built. Gradually we realise that the city is imaginary. His account is an attempt to give his ideas a fixed shape. This, in a nutshell, is the story of Thing.
Thing is the first book in the The art of ~scaping series. It accompanies the video Thing. The images in the book are from the video, as is the text, there featured as a monologue.
