Foucault’s a second quote

16Sep11

The space in which we live, which draws us out of ourselves, in which the erosion of our lived. Our time and our history occurs, the space that claws and gnaws at us, is also, in itself, a hetrogenous space.

This has made me think of Tracey Emin’s bed and the idea that it is in some ways a mirror, it is a real object but it does shape how you relate to it and how you see yourself. These virtual spaces appear to currently lack to gnawing and clawing in an asthetic way. Emotionally however they are becoming more like a home with people in them. Perhaps eventually the icons of facebook will become our living rooms.
