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