In June 2015, we traveled to a place that doesn’t exist.The work was semi-ethnographic documentation of travel to a fictional Bamako. Over more than 10 days, photographer Maciek Pozoga and I meticulously documented and staged the real and the unreal through photo and sound. The imagined capital evolved out of discussions with Bamakois: visual artists, traditional griots, anthropologists, DIY filmmakers, and modern studio producers. At the forefront was perception of Mali and its capital – what it is, what it could have been, and what it will be. At the core was the idea of travel, that feeling of being in a strange land. On this journey we fabricated and found clues of alternate pasts, hidden in architecture, dress, song, or deep in the dreams of possible futures. Christopher Kirkley
