Marie LaBrosse: Introduction to "City of Non-Existence"

The American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS), looking out from the foothills of its host city, is made of glass. When I would arrive with the sunrise, the backlit silhouette of the mountain range outside of town gain texture would turn dusty purple, then dusty in the higher light of day. When I would leave with the sunset, the city would slowly go electric until the sprawl below became handfuls of scattered sequins.
