Chris Burnett has been wrestling with language in relation to places since the early 1990's. Over time, he developed a software that enabled him to make pictures of places out of bodies of texts. For Burnett, those word-pictures "form a pattern, a linguistic snapshot of sprawl...an unruly growth principle, interlinking the edges of city and highway, story and image, computer code and text." SprawlCode:descriptions is his most comprehensive statement to date. It is an enigmatic manual that brings together over 350 descriptions of sprawl in 14 seperate chapters with an iluminating preface and an image index.
