Cities are dynamic entities of material and immaterial flows, processes and systems. Manchester, like many places around the globe is also a city of disappearances certainly in terms of its nightscapes and nocturnal ambiances. For seven years I have been documenting how these places have been changing across the city and the wider borough. First, in order to capture some of the different ambiances of darknesses in Manchester and how they are changing, has led to many hundreds of hours nightwalking through nightscapes and the production of an archive of photographs, maps, and autoethnographic notes. Recent work, meanwhile, aims to illustrate the entanglements between humans and non-humans, bodies and landscape, and place and time, to consider how we might evolve approaches for the design of the future city.
