Tim Davis's Il tecnogiro dell'ornitorinco is a photographic inquiry into the theme of technology in relation to the high-speed railroad in Italy. Tim Davis says in the introduction: "Here is the cover of this book I would have chosen had I been allowed to take the picture: imagine a woman working at the reception desk of a railroad control facility. She is tall and awkward, with big hair tied up like a Pisanello, standing against a backdrop of security videos, their monitors tinted violet to dull yellow like an enormous bruise. She is holding a lacquer Chinese fan, using her own physical power to keep cool, even in the most glamorous high-tech setting. In that second, I knew how my project would function. I would make a tour of the Treno Alta Velocità ("TAV") and its environs searching for ways technology moves through our lives: a "tecnogiro".
