It’s actually “foo-KOE“.

Umberto Eco and his literary theories were hugely influential on me as a teenager, and the one that’s stuck with me the most is the notion that there’s no divide between high art and pure entertainment. I honestly like to think you can feel that one in particular radiate through Ephemeris.

The other one that stuck with me is hyperreality, and to this day I still can’t see a plastic Christmas tree without thinking of Umberto Eco.
