VOIDOPOLIS is a retelling of Dante's Inferno, informed by the grim experience of wandering through NYC during a pandemic. The text, made only with words that do not contain the letter "E, " is an example of synthetic language, composed in collaboration with a modified AI text generating tool. The images are created by ‘wiping’ humans from stock photography. The narrative unfolds on Instagram over 40-ish posts, a digital performance meant to culminate in loss: once the story is complete, it will be deleted forever. VOIDOPOLIS offers a way of practicing the act of forgetting that it was ever made. Its omissions speak to loss—of time, of sickened people—and by itself ultimately disappearing, makes a case for the collective amnesia that emerges from trauma.

For Exposure, new episodes of VOIDOPOLIS are being exhibited on https://www.instagram.com/codame/ over the entire week, from 7 September through 13 September. Check in everyday at 11am for new episodes.
