Out of place artifacts persist in the excavation of ancient cities, while general displacement is rampant in modern metropolises by way of newfangled techno-accessories. Bi-pedal humanoids seek refuge in continuous partial attention. Free from the immobility of desktop computing, while subject to local anesthesia, a numbness to the immediate world (this is a quote from an art gallery show).

Animals everywhere are drawn to urban environments to make their nests, a form of adaptation in hostile environments. Why should anyone wonder differently about bi-pedal humanoids seeking refuge in continuous partial attention? [1]
