Each book is slightly different.

“In contrast to J. G. Balard’s novel High-Rise (Condominium), from which I was arbitrarily and laterally inspired, here the full-fledged skyscrapers are replaced by squat, yellowing apartment blocks. The human dynamics bring us back to an inescapable perception of apathy and atavistic nihilism, well hidden behind a technology that has found in dopamine the goose that lays the golden egg. There is no revolt here, or rather, there seems to be no reason for it. Living cohesively in the same structure means making compromises and consciously accepting the long-term damage. The photographs are mostly taken indoors using analogue and digital cameras. When negatives are not printed in the darkroom, they are rephotographed on the window glass, photocopied, rephotographed, and so on. ”
