NIGHT HAUNTS

I found this flier for a really interesting new collaborative journal on London at night. It’s an ongoing record which is updated monthly throughout 2006.

“In this contemporary nocturnal journal, Sandhu prospects in the London night with the people who drive its pulse from night cleaners to praying nuns, security guards to the Samaritans. In each episode, Sandhu reflects on the nature of the urban night. Has night life been corroded by light and entertainment? What are the invisible forces that pulse through the sleeping city? Is real darkness possible any more?”

Not only is it an interesting read that explores the power of the London night and those whose lives revolve around it, but the website is also an eerie sensory experience thanks to a collaboration with the sound artist Scanner.
