We are composed of matter and live in the midst of matter.Our objective should not be to renounce matter, but to search for a form of matter other than objects. What that form is called-architecture,gardens,technology- is not important.

“At present, we still need biological brains to provide the cross-referencing and association, but more sophisticated software and faster hardware will increasingly usurp even that function. Net Gain : Richard Dawkins”

"There is no stage at which "man" does not demarcate, beacon or sign his space, leaving traces that are both symbolic and practical."

Lefebvre, The Production of Space,


Against SPACE : Place-Movement-Knowledge

"I wish to argue, in this chapter against the notion of space. Of all the terms we use to describe the world we inhabit, it is the most abstract, the most empty, the most detached from the realities of life and experience."

Tim Ingold

Introduction : Spatiality .
Robert T. Tally Jr.
the New Critical Idiom, Routledge 2013



Beginning as one always does in the middle, in mediis rebus, one experiences a sense of disorientation, a sort of cartographic anxiety or spatial perplexity that appears to be part of our fundamental being-in-the-world. It is an experience not unlike that of Dante, in the opening lines of his Commedia:


Midway along the journey of our life,
I woke to find myself in a dark wood,
for I had wandered off from the straight path.

( Dante 1984 : 67)

As a number of critics and theorists have noted, this bewilderment has increased with the modern and especially postmodern condition.


This latest mutation in space-postmodern hyperspace-has finally succeeded in transcending the capacities of the individual human body to locate itself, to organize its immediate surroundings perceptually, and cognitively to map its position in a mappable external world.

(Fredric Jameson 1991:44)


The Poetics of Space.


The house, from cellar to garret. The significance of the hut.

"He will revive the primitivity and the specificity of the fears. In our civilization, which has the same light everywhere, and puts electricity in its cellars, we no longer go to the cellar carrying a candle. But the unconscious cannot be civilized. It takes a candle when it goes to the cellar."

Gaston Bachelard.
