The inaugural publication from Simulacrum Press is Sacha Archer’s Zoning Cycle. It is in an edition of 5 boxes. Each box contains 370 light-weight, loose cards.
In Zoning Cycle, each day of the year is allocated a unique set of 4 co-ordinates. Each set of co-ordinates acts to demarcate an event-zone which is active only on its given day. All speech which occurs within an active event-zone is part of the poem; a poem located somewhere between the imagined and the actual.
