Darpana is a woman made of math, enslaved to the mathematicians who created her. People are her input, changing her personality and body with each new encounter. When no one is around, she disappears. How the hell is she going to escape?
In this collection, Matthew Sanborn Smith explores dark futures and fantasies of people merging bodies, the sky splitting open, and an artist’s asylum that houses deeply disturbing work.
