Vurt-Inspired Graffiti by DEIH

A friend got in touch to tell us about Deih’s incredible work – and how much he’s been influenced by Jeff Noon’s work. Check out this amazing series of wall drawings, poster acts and silkscreen images, depicting isolated characters from a sort of Edgeland, a blurry frontier between real and imagined environments… Sound familiar? All these images are influenced by the concept of Nebbia (fog, in Italian), again hinting at parallel worlds that mysteriously meet now and then, but only for a short while.

David Finnigan: Home Karaoke and Stigmatica

David Finnigan is a writer/dramatist based in Canberra, Australia. His work is lively, experimental, full of remixes and mash-up effects. He did some pieces that rework elements from Jeff’s work. First of all two theatre pieces, one part-based on the story Home Karaoke. The second theatre piece remixes the Stigmatica story, amongst other things. And he’s also done some experiments using the Mappalujo engine. Find them here. His Blind Dragonfly site as a whole is a really good writer’s space, with an amazing amount of content.
