Meanda novella published for Exoplanet Lot exhibition

Meanda CoverMeanda [French Edition, 2016] is a novella written in English, and published as an ebook in English with a French translation. The exoplanet, Meanda, is 90% water. Vast oceans are dotted with archipelagos of mountainous islands, where rivers meander to rejoin the sea. A human expedition arrives to establish an escape settlement for a few hugely wealthy people. The environment on Earth is seriously degraded and civil society is in rapid decline. The expedition’s instrumentation tells them that the exoplanet does not have any higher intelligence life-forms ….

The novella was written during a residency at Maisons Daura in Saint Cirq Lapopie in the Lot Valley in France. The Lot is the most meandering river in France. The ebook was published as part of the Exoplanet Lot exhibition organised by Maison des Arts Georges Pompidou, Cajarc.

A daily twitter version of Meanda ran July-September 2016 on @Meanda55555.

Fragments of the text were installed on the GR36 long-distance footpath between Saint Cirq Lapopie and Bouzies where it runs beside the river Lot.
