A Co-existence of the senses
In urban space I see an expression of a particular society’s values regarding democracy, identity and citizenship. Public and private space are key elements of the imagined communities we call nations. This project, investigate the individual’s relationship with their private habitat and the social built environment. From these two realms we construct our personal meaning of place. The private and the social realm are not segregated, of course; but the spatial ambiguity created between the personal subjectivity and social objectivity is a fertile platform to critically elaborate a psychological as well as bodily and metaphysical relationship to space. A lived in space always transcends geometry and measurability.
I use this opportunity to thank two great friends, Jean McNeil for helping with the text and unique support she offered me all along this project and performer Will Dickie for his unconditional three years contribution in making this photographic project possible. Also I will like to thanks artist and designer Bernard Arce and Guillermo Daldovo for they collaboration on Will Faces and artist / photographer Sophie Hoyle, Jonathan Stuart Mckenzi and my students from the course Photography and the City / London Barcelona - Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
