Hypocentre shows us briefly and through clever deception, the unsettling sight of central Paris entirely empty of people. This is a technique we have seen in Masataka Nakano's astounding book Tokyo Nobody from 1996. The difference here is that we are looking at video footage. Despite the movement of escalators, the odd traffic light and a lonely plastic bag, there is nothing. Once one has finished puzzling just how this was achieved, there is time to ponder the myriad other questions posed about our cities, their purpose and our habitation of them.
