Artist Dave Hullfish Bailey sees connections that others do not, and uses those insights to make speculative proposals that often involve urban land use. This book is a collection of what he calls ''detritus''; from the link he created between the historic Dutch city of Utrecht and a homeless camp in the California desert called Slab City. The mixed narratives of individual freedom and communal living meet in both places, as diverse as they may seem, as do other places drawn together using non-linear, multi-layered methods to explore subjects like the history of the Colorado River, the social functions of books and libraries, and disciplines as diverse as chemistry, architecture,
social psychology, agriculture, language and disaster response.
