ART, WRITING, AUDIO AND MORE: STUPLEX 002 LAUNCHES IN LIVERPOOL
You hear it on the streets, in the bars, down the alleyways, from open windows:
“Stuplex is coming! Stuplex is coming!”
You cock your ear to the breeze and hope for a clue to help unlock the meaning of this curious phrase, but the breeze is keeping the secret to itself. Or so you think.
An empty cardboard box tumbles along the pavement and rolls to a stop just ahead of you. An empty cardboard box just waiting.
A box just waiting to be filled.
