In The Enchantment of Modern Life (2001), Jane Bennett tends to an enchanted modern world, which is shifty and indeterminate, provoking breathless fascination.

This thesis proceeds as three tales, writings and drawings, considering how expanded architectural practices might approach such a world, and encourage shifted sensibilities. This involved making which acknowledged and cultivated delight in the world that now surrounds us, responding in process and materiality, to its unstable rhythms.
