Publisher's Synopsis

Type I enacts a hyperreality, in which the effects of climate change are damaging our world, and technological advances are held up as the key innovative tools for alleviating ecological collapse. Merging poetics, visuals, fiction and essaying to create a vivid, multi-layered novel, Type I offers up not only an immersive portrayal of two anthropologists taking part in a VR experiment, but also an in-depth commentary on the complexity of tech-human relations and the dangers of optimisation. Exploring virtual realities whilst engaging with the challenges presented by AI, the narrative generates an eerily futuristic atmosphere, and a creeping sensation of apophenia.
