about:blank is what appears when there is nothing else to display. It exists in the space between the internet and you. From here we depart. 

Transported through fragments of Dublin, we find an émigré working in a charity shop, a missing cat, the internal chatter of a yoga session, a writer disagreeing with her characters and a couple discussing their absent daughter. 

Written as a circular mixture of narrative-poetry, prose, monologue and drama, and adapted into a site responsive and audio-immersive journey, about:blank begins in the cloud and ends where you live.
