In « Sinking Ship » Kyle Thompson explores a locational muse- a now abandoned town in the American grasslands. In order to gain an insight in the towns past, he begins to reach out to those still living in similar towns; Towns which once had populations of a few hundred, but now have populations of just a few. Some with only one resident remaining.
Through these interactions, he begins to weave a story of a towns past. A collection of quiet moments of defeat. When the train stopped running through town. When the oil well dried up. When the church burned down.
