"Place is security space is freedom; we are attached to the one and long for the other.” P3
At first only the point of entry is recognised; beyond lies space. In time more and more landmarks are identified and the subject gains confidence in movement. Finally the space consists of familiar landmarks and paths – in other words, place. P71 Yi-Fu Tuan 1977
Why do I post this? Tuan's analysis of space and place is a long time favourite of mine. I love the way his writing throws a little darkness on the things I take for granted forcing me to uncover them and look at them anew. I have used this thinking about space and place - what we are attached to and what we long for - in many different places and spaces over the years - it is wonderfully transferable.
