Speaking of Space: Revealing the Other St George's Field

483 views

Published on

This paper discusses how urban spaces can be used in subjective and creative ways that run counter to their intended uses. Using a local space as her case study, the cemetery at the University of Leeds, Tina introduces novel and inventive ways that individuals have used the cemetery to both express themselves and respond to the space. These phenomena create momentary connections in the form of communications that take unconventional routes through space. This means they are able to challenge established power structures: cultural, linguistic, administrative, ideological and so on. Tina introduces some of these works while situating them within the fields of psychogeography and cultural theory.
