The progressive loneliness and estrangement from others in the face of increasing population density is elaborated upon in Hole. Here Bozanich looks both further within and further without, searching for the social contexts of alienation. Anchored by the life cycle of a family of rats seen in their nests through a long tube, Bozanich maps the correspondence of inner and outside worlds in a succession of alternately intimate and distanced images that depict homeland and nationalism, country and city, pets and vermin, childhood and sexuality, leisure and religion, birth and burial. Bozanich concludes with a conception of shared experience as a collective quantification of lost moments.
