Description

In 1982 Pier Giorgio Di Cicco entered a monastery and didn't break publishing silence for fifteen years. In 2004 he was elected Poet Laureate of the City of Toronto and went on to become a renowned speaker on urban design and the future of cities. In 2017 he moved into the oldest haunted church rectory in Canada, from where he mapped a cyber-cosmology for our times with wizardly humor, holographic abandon and a litany of blessings across dimensions. The former monk became the ghost of St. Columbkille

Enclosed in this book are catalogues and inventories of wish fulfillment, and a fascinating "virtual game" in which the "player" becomes master of an imagination not his own, where past and present and future find a trajectory that makes faster-than-light travel look old-fashioned.

Wishipedia is the public code to the private space that is both mythic and stunningly contemporary.
