Statement

 

Ny By (New Town)

Ny By is a town. Not a town of this world, but another. In Ny By, citizens worship snacks and sandwiches. They pull threads from the soil and collect geodes on the shore. Life here is a mystery. There is no language, no laws, and no existential crises. Each life form is unique, funny, and content.
