The dichotomy of space and place is described by humanist geographer Yi-Fu Tuan when he states “what begins as undifferentiated space becomes place as we get to know it better and endow it with value.” 1 However, is that endowment the beginning of dissolution into a utility of representation and value as Baudrillard suggests vis-à-vis the act of naming? 2 What are the implications of “practising space” 3 as de Certeau calls it, and how have artists uncovered this moment of transition, which is ripe with meaning and at the same time on the cusp of disappearance?
