Product Description

Set against a background of social media and post-truth politics, Lamentville reflects on what we might lose as the world passes through a digital age—and whether this is cause for celebration, regret, or just another step in our inevitable evolution. Suspended between loss and recovery, Lamentville comments on the way humans interact, form and express identity in spaces saturated with digital technology and virtual hyperactivity, while emphasising the value of remembrance and emotional depth. Through unusual perspectives, subtle experimentation and a bold command of language, Lamentville celebrates diverse poetic forms and sites of composition while drawing on self-awareness, satire and issues of belonging and displacement. Lamentville holds a place for all of us—from the post-Millennial to those who clearly recall an analogue world.
