dispatches, news, songs, and fragments from the Ghost City: the

ruins, rants, and shards of memory that paint a collective portrait
of dystopia.

NO WAY OUT BUT ONWARD: An adventure in psychogeography through New
York's High Line

PowerPoint performance written and narrated by Ross Lipman
Duet for Contrabass by Laura Steenberge, performed with Mike Ibarra
Photos by Leigh Evans, Ross Lipman, Nina Mankin.

The High Line is the abandoned freight rail that runs through the
west side of Manhattan. Recently designated the future site of an
undetermined public space, it for the moment remains a haunted
paradise above the city--a verdant wasteland inhabited only by
occasional taggers, wanderers, and police. In October 2004 a ragtag
group of us ventured up to explore. As we were to learn, it's a
space with its own internal logic, interacting with its visitors in a
way unique to each.

is a newly created performance group founded by filmmaker Ross Lipman
to realize temporary manifestations of non-filmic cinemas.
