The Indifferent Wonder of Edible Places, is an examination of the violence of completion. Of complete memory and perforated form. Of edible history and perforated reality. It is a repository that ebbs and flows when explored, and simulates the arduous process of generating meaning from the material dregs of time.
Adapted from a collection of letters written by Mir UmarHassan to his editor at the Malwa Chronicle, documenting the many histories and the many deaths of the town of Matsyapur. The letters were never printed, but were recently compiled and translated by the historian Jami Gejunath for the Society for Preservation of Obscure Fictions.
The indifferent wonder of an edible place, is our attempt to ponder the violence of erasure and the profound grief of having to survive on the margins of history.
Created with support from Phoenix, Leicester supported by Arts Council England. A site-specific variant of the game was displayed at Phoenix, Leicester as Langoors in The Labyrinth and at the Video Game Art Gallery in Chicago.
