A boy goes to a club where nobody knows him.
A woman looks after a cat belonging to someone she’s never met.
A man wanders through the city at night spraying images of fat little men on walls.
There are three stories, and each story is made up of three chapters. So reading it means navigating through a total of nine chapters, all of which are connected in some way.
The work is an online reading experiment based on a story made by Anneke Hymmen and Kumi Hiroi and Basje Boer. The story is developed by responding alternately photos and texts – photos created by Hymmen and Hiroi and text written by Boer. There are three points of view in the narrative and it sometimes overlaps. The story is translated to an online reading experience by Hiroi and van Leeuwen & van Leeuwin. The work is primarily designed for mobile screen.
