Liberal humanism is on its last legs. The older humanism is dead. There is only debris left to build with.

This experimental work begins with one of the most famous works of humanist erudition, and re-enacts its ruination. It presents textual residues of Robert Burton’s The Anatomy of Melancholy from which over half a million words were removed by automated and manual deletion.
