Distracted Geographies: An Archipelago of Intent by Sudeep Sen is about the politics of body and text, mask and posture, desire and distraction, disease and health?the relationship between indoor and outdoor, island and mainland, centre and periphery?and the texture that dictates topography and cartography. The book contends boldly with intimate issues of love, loss, illness, passion, and sex. Even though the locale is largely set in various parts of Scotland, it could ostensibly be anywhere that is imaginatively similar. Using both a minimalist and cinematic form, the scenes shift, dissolve, inter-cut, flashback, and fast-forward to provide a narrative that is at the same time linear and oblique, classical and avant-garde. The form and structure of the piece is inspired both by the architecture of the human body, and the shape of Pablo Neruda?s Odes that reflect the long-thin shape of Chile. Sections and sub-sections within the narrative join together like synapses between bone and bone; and the titles act as translucent markers or breath pauses, not separators. Printed Pages: 216.
