“Space, be it public or private, is before anything, a practiced terrain that appears –is constituted, in action, with individuals and their movements giving it meaning (…)”
– José Miguel G. Cortés
Among our defining traits we find a tendency to construct places to call our own, in the process, we mold spaces, define territories. Daily, we skillfully deal with an interminable succession of stratified zones, circumnavigating boundaries and traversing through physical and imaginary borders; some of these are intimately known, while others are barely intuited, yet, always present.
This is how we traverse through space, extending territories: regions pollinated with values established by us, its users. Thus, we enable places, receptacles of objects and values that govern our exchanges. It is immersed in this network of reciprocity that we come upon meaning, triggered by the presence of an object or an intention.
RegionesTransitorias, is proposed as an investigation that underlines the processes involved in the creation of territory and its relation to memory and identity, as well as our relationship with space and its politization.
