This art project is based on research of geographic locations, with traits that can be interpreted as non-places*. Introducing substitution in image processing, it analyzes the position of abstract shapes and their corelation with the given architectonic surroundings. Removing comercial texts, which influences the perception of the observer, creates a new meditative urban landscape. The series of artworks researches how we indentify key elements that create us and our surroundings. At which places, namely nonplaces*, does the process of development and transfer of information that form us happen? How do new technology influence our movement in physical and virtual „places“ and how do we identify ourselves with spacial and temporally localised culture.

 

* „This, as we have seen, is expressed in changes of scale, in the proliferation of imaged and imaginary references, and in the spectacular acceleration of means of transport. Its concrete outcome involves considerable physical modifications: urban concentrations, movements of population and the multiplication of what we call 'non-places', in opposition to the sociological notion of place, associated by Mauss and a whole ethnological tradition with the idea of a culture localized in time and space.“ Mark Auge, „Non Places“
