Architektur für Reisende (Architecture for Travelers) is a volume of poems with travel notes on a hiking tour straight through the American state Texas. The better part of the book was produced in the framework of the same name building project which the author, the architect Alan Worn, the poet Lynn Xu as well as family and friends in Marfa, Texas jointly realized.
The poems by Kinga Tóth play with sensual and esthetic empirical values of their readers. In meticulous descriptions technical components were interweaved with human emotions. Over and over again the focus lies on physical relations between machine and human in which the latter is objectivized and dehumanized. Human and machine become categories. The language remains objective and sober. Even so, it is exactly this coldness and precision which sharpens and strengthens the look on the dreamlike scenarios.
