Incoherent Geography, Phanto-Cartography, and the Open Commons

In Divisible Cities by Dominic Pettman. Click to read the review by Eileen Joy.


To pull cities together, and then push them apart. To feel their bricks crumble in our fingers like honeycomb, before fusing them once more between our palms. To hang the great capitals of the world from the crescent moon, like a nightwatchman’s lamp. To fold them into origami birds that nest in our hats and pockets. To unpack them into radiant flotillas that span the placid oceans.
