An architect talks about the city he has built. Gradually we realize that the city is imaginary. His account is an attempt to give his ideas a fixed shape. This, in a nutshell, is the story of Thing, a book and video by artist Anouk De Clercq. Thing is part of "The art of ~scaping" , a research project funded by the Research Fund University College Ghent. Thing is the first book in the "The art of ~scaping" series. It accompanies the video Thing, made in collaboration with Scanner (soundtrack) and Scanlabprojects (images). The images in the book are from the video, as is the text, there featured as a monologue.
