An Introduction
Who are these creatures?Are they the characters & things you might see, walking down the street inany big city?Are they the inhabitants of a metropolis at some time in the far future?Or are they the occupants of our own minds?Whoever they are, they walk a line between crazy exuberance, & standingin well-behaved rows. Some of them are reacting to their immediateneighbours, but they all seem to respect each others’ space.They hint at both Mayan glyphs & street graf.Oddly enough, Jacobson’s figures remind me of Nathalie Sarraute’s« Tropismes ». Some of Sarraute’s short prose pieces strike me as examplesof fiction where the main character is third person plural: they, them.
