On a dusty warehouse shelf sits a souvenir of a pre-digital age: a child’s diorama in a cardboard box with a glass front.
Behind the glass, and in front of a curved, night-blue paper sky in which a tinfoil moon rises, someone has placed buildings cut from an old postcard; caught in the act of soaring among the buildings, papier-mâché birds with dyed feathers hang motionless on invisible threads.
A night city of silence. All is motionless, except when footsteps outside set the birds trembling.
