A diverse, hybrid text which interweaves poetry and prose to form a series of meditations on the theme of ‘art and lies’, specifically lies of connection and the pervasiveness of mobile phone use and the way that phone conversations act as temporary rooms for voices which are lifted out of bodies (and out of countries). In the disembodiment of the voice our unconscious fictions are revealed.
