‘The Transition artists are bored in the city, with ‘having to strain to still discover mysteries on the sidewalk billboards.’* Deciding to follow Rimbaud and ‘believe in all enchantments’ they etch and sketch, dream and scheme. Tumbling into the future they escape into the real unreality of kino-culture, purile pornographic pleasures, hidey-holes, haunted houses and hallucinations. Holidaying in these, their desiring spaces, for them real life is elsewhere.’
Alex Michon 2012.
