Description

Where is the metropolitan equivalent of Paradise, and why can’t it ever be found? In TV, why is there always a dead-end when people try to escape from evil? Why should sex under a bridge be considered an aesthetic experience on par with queuing? On Marginal Space: Artefacts of the Mundane is a collection of eight photo-cum-text essays, and one conclusive theoretical contemplation investigating the idiosyncrasies of usually neglected urban spaces: the roundabout, the dead-end, spaces under bridges, and others. At the core of each essay is one particular typology of marginal space, which is visually explored and textually related to other, nonarchitectural walks of life, resulting in casual meditations on the seemingly insignificant nooks and crannies of the spatial networks in our cities.
