At Mustarinda, Klaudia and Siouxzi are creating an aural-visual landscape for the multidisciplinary project ‘In the Dark, Dark Room’ (2017) which began with academic research at the ICI, evolved into the novel ‘Our Little Wooden House in the Forest’ and will soon be included as text and image extracts in ‘Little Houses, Big Forests (desire is no light thing)’, the anthology book to be published next year by Repeater Books.
