Comparative analysis of 'Invisible Cities' and Seattle

This project is a comparison of Italo Calvino's book 'Invisible
Cities' and Seattle.  The book is descriptions of various imaginary
cities, but all state some sort of fundamental truth about the urban
environment. I am interested in using Seattle as a backdrop to re-create
these invisible cities through digital photography and digital painting.
The images may also include text from the book both in the original
Italian and the translated English. The final project will be presented in
the form of a book.
