     Some chapters of my “Lost Alphabet” installation that had shown earlier this year at La Citta Perduta, can be seen in both Sparquerry, and ACCentaury (ACC Alpha). Two days ago, I began adding parts of the Exodus, Multi-Species-Chorus, and Pied Piper chapters to the old reflecting pool on the Plateau of Man, as seen in the photo above. Having placed the ship of refugees in the center of the pool, I noticed that the arcade behind it was quite similar in color, blending it with the background to such a degree that the ship was barely visible. Then I decided to add a wall of water, not only highlighting the boat, but adding some lively animation to the calm surrounds. One thing led to another, and before long, I had a flood on my hands. The concept of the lost alphabet takes a new variation here: it is washed away. You can literally see this, by the sheets of As, Bs, and Cs, churning in the waves.

     The arcade (Puppet Theater) has more to see if you follow behind the waterfall that spills from its façade. Walk along the back corridor that will lead you to another section of the city along the North Shore.
