Unit is a first person account of the life of an artificial being; a speculative perspective on the animate and inanimate world; a rational mistake; a concatenation of text, diagrams, calligrams, algebra and other signifying material; a childish fantasy; a family story in the absence of the family; a toy evolved into a philosopher.
'A kind of Frankenstein for the cyborg age – but narrated by the monster rather than the inventor. Or maybe The Invention of Morel narrated from the PoV of the recording machine rather than the fugitive. '
