yellow, no sleep at night
Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff, Alberta
"...pure time is the vector of erosion, of passing away; pure space is the domain of flow, of the nomadic passing by. But place is the point of their intersection, the spatial point at which the temporal instant can leave a trace as a historical moment or event. Place then centres, grounds, brings permanence, underwrites community - placemaking is the binding of time and space into a knot, a stitch that holds." Just as individual identity is not fixed either is the identity, or meaning, of a place. Layers of experience and culture rest on this topography, providing multiple meanings and values to multiple cultures. the past is a place i am a visitor there as history is a thing constantly in the act of becoming.
