Several people have sent me a link to this video, "Seattle Time Lapse," which is part of a project called Empty America.
An empty Seattle, however, looks like any Seattle on a Sunday. We are not a crowded city, though we should do everything in our power to become one. The less space there is between us, the better we are as humans, the hyper-social animal.
Note from Fauna: [It] is a little difficult to translate and is used as both a noun and verb in the original Chinese post. It has been translated as "snail house" by terroir here but the basic meaning is a small and uncomfortable but necessary living place (noun) or to make something into a small and uncomfortable but necessary living place (verb).]
