A photographic essay by David Sylvian. A limited edition publication: 500 copies signed and numbered by the artist. 50 signed, unnumbered copies randomly distributed among the remaining edition.

"Be it city or desert, the wilderness sleeps 15 centimeters beneath American roads and many photographers have documented the desolation of these roads through the windscreen of a car. But the photographs in this book, their jaggie violence forever lost in the eternal median of 1 and 0, shatters the American road legend as if it were a cracker. Clearly, this is a new aesthetic made manifest by the emptiness of the digital." - Shinya Fujiwara

The photographs in this series were taken between Oct 2019–April 2020, a period encompassing the outbreak of the pandemic in the US. Outside of tonal adjustments, none of the photographs in this collection have been altered in post production.
