Vanishing Song sees Thomas Keller repetitively visit scenes of importance from the life and work of Jack Kerouac. Reading Kerouac, Keller felt immediately absorbed by the vivid descriptions of locations which became intermingled with his complex emotions of joy and loss. Scenes of abandonment exude not just melancholie and loss, but the fallen timber in dappled light tell stories of the lives lived within what were once walls. In tracing the history of the place, Keller communicates a kind of anxious but hopeful sense of waiting for what will come next. Vanishing Song was Launched at FK Kollektiv in Berlin, Germany in August 2020.
