Well TIL the word “kenopsia” and I love it.

A concoction from the Greek “kenosis” (emptiness) and “opsia” (seeing), kenopsia refers to the “eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that was once bustling with activity but is now abandoned and empty”—a deserted movie set, a club the morning after a party, locked down cities, Chernobyl.
