For her new work “Cities in Flight or The Satellite Variations”, produced for the exhibition at Rinomina, de la Torre takes James Blish’s science fiction novel as a starting point to examine the structure of story-telling and to build up a parallel narrative to the one evident in the story. By stressing words in the existing storyline, de la Torre develops a parallel world that overlays the pre-existing utopia laid out in the book.
