"Esperpento, meaning grotesque or absurd, is a collection of aerial views of Spain taken from Google Earth combined with text from Ramón Maria del Valle Inclan’s “Luces de Bohemia” about a poet who struggles with blindness. These fragments are inserted as dialogue boxes into the maps, where the individual who is speaking remain unknown. The phrases point to the human condition as a tragicomedy."--From the publisher.
