Las Vegas marks itself out by nothingness. All the negative descriptions that can generally be used in labelling a city, for it's absence of consistency actually makes it's existence doubtful : No man's land, waste ground, non place, ghost town, urban simulacrum, nowhere city, etc. For us it is Zeropolis, the non city which is the very first city, just as zero is the first number. The nothing that counts. The nothingness of neon.
