Ubiquitous Place

The spaces of the future will be consisted of more transit functions of locations and less meanings of locations, as more and more spaces will hold computational images and messages that interact with many different parameters of temporal populations in the space. Concerning the changes, the adoption of the concept, “non-place,” opens up the possibility to the compositions of meanings through relational spaces of networks, links, and nodes. Semiological as well as functional space structures will provoke the new approach to the architectural design. Daniel Dale’s “Ubiquitous place” postulates the conceptual simulation of the user perception over the new structure. Some camera movement techniques have been developed to present the image of subjective perception.

Artist Statement

Ubiquitous place; the film elaborates on the idea of ‘non-place’ a term coined by Marc Auge in his collection of essays entitled Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity (1995). for Auge Non-places are regarded as spaces of transience that do not hold enough significance to be regarded as “places”.

As we spend more and more of our time in transit through ‘non-places’ the film attempts to explore the possibilities, freedoms, limitations and anxieties about these types of spaces . In time we might find potential in the ‘matter out of ‘place”, the EXCESS, the unframed, negative space, the pre-categorized, the ineffable, the ambiguous, that which transgresses form and boundary.
