Cities of You

City #39: Bremnali (Melani W)

16 x 20", Gouache and Colored Pencil on Paper

You can find Bremnali on a tiny strip of land four meters wide. The houses grow along an invisible plane like vines along the side of a building. There are no roads or walkways in Bremnali. Instead, you must walk through each building between your origin and destination, whether it is a home, grocery store, or movie theater. However, due to the citizens' rather hospitable dispositions, you will rarely make it to your destination. On your way to the grocery store, citizens will insist you stay for dinner. On your way to the movie theater, you will get caught up in a household's movie night. As you leave to the next city, the elderly will reminisce over all the exotic places they visited before they arrived at Bremnali.
