I just think it would be really fascinating. There’s so much: the preserved Soviet city of Pripyat; getting to see what happens when humanity departs an environment and nature starts taking over again; the twisting channel of artistic appropriation that runs back through the computer game S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Tarkovsky’s film Stalker and the Strugatsky brothers’ novel Roadside Picnic (all three of which are quite awesome. For an extensive look at the Zone, STALKER, Stalker and Soviet history, check this).
