The Apparition of Tatlin’s Tower
In Moscow, there is no escape from an affect of anticipation: I am waiting that, if not uncovered by another city corner, Tatlin’s Tower would unscrew itself from beyond my feet in magnificent swirls, like a galaxy which has detonated, its long sleeves begin unfolding.
I used to observe all seven Moscow towers from my balcony, but now several are obstructed by new buildings. At least one “new tower,” so-called Triumph Palace, was erected imitating the architectural forms. I heard some insist there are nine (or something) “Stalin-empire skyscrapers” in Moscow now.
