“Non-Places” — I think the difference between a place and a non-place is pretty arbitrary and the term is a contradiction in itself. After all, even non-places are places, they only fail to get that recognition. When I do recognize it photographically, I try to convert a non-place into a place.

Hmm … it’s all very complicated 😀

As I said yesterday, non-places are fantastically useful artistic devices, exactly because they “do not hold enough significance to be regarded as places“. They do not come with pre-attached meaning, they are vessels open and willing to accept any meaning I fancy to pour in. They are perfect raw material.

The Song of the Day is “Shoplifters Of The World Unite” by The Smiths. Hear it on YouTube.

Oh, by the way, I took the liberty to remove a pair of price tags from the picture above 🙂

  1. Da wurde aber jemandem “ein Strich durch die Rechnung” gemacht. 🙂 Und die anderen gehen einfach gesenkten Blicks vorbei…

    cheers
