East of Borneo



Antifurniture, 2020. Paperback, 160pp., 7x7.5 inches


East of Borneo is the daily journal of Kashina, a collector and connoisseur of perfumes and scents. In the service of description, her diary tracks encyclopedic projections of sense and sensation, a dream-landscape built from her baroque private cultural catalogues, including psychotronic cinema, underground literature, esoteric musicology, and spice-garden botany.

"This kind of writing moves forward like mathematics, never to be undone or superseded." - Luca Turin (from the preface).
