Place and non-place are rather like opposed polarities: the first is never completely erased, the second never totally completed.
The distinction between places and non-places derives from the opposition between place and space.
Space, for Michel de Certeau, is a ‘frequented place’, ‘an intersection of moving bodies’: it is the pedestrians who transform a street(geometrically defined as a place by town planners) into a space.
The place(geometric space) as an assembly of elements coexisting in a certain order and the space(anthropological/existential space) as an animation of these places by the motion of a moving body.
‘The space could be to the place what the word becomes when it is spoken’

The shots where the pharcyde members and the camera is upside down looks awesome and I would like to incorporate this technique into a film one day that I’m involved with making. I plan on finding out how this shot was conducted.


Film idea

I plan on having a man walk into an elevator with a daily mail as he starts reading it, then when the doors close there will be a microwave sound effect playing. Then a few seconds later outcomes a David Cameron lookalike, shifting his blue tie, with a brief case.

Chris suggested having the daily mail newspaper with hate plastered over the top in the same fornt so the newspaper reads of “Daily hate”. Think I may use wail or maul instead.


Tony Hill came into the college yesterday and showed us some of his work and gave the class a talk about his work. He use to be an architect but ended up changing his career to making films based on structure’s and no narrative. I would describe his style as inspirational, artistic and mind boggling.

Work we did on Monday we had to think about a stranger we saw or met over the last week and imagine that we have met them and have found put everything about them and create a character from that experience and act them for a little bit as well.
We also played this game where half of the class closed their eyes and got guided around the room to various different sound tracks taking it in turns and it was a very unusual experience but it was very nice as when you did this your imagination would just run wild.

Intertextuality reference here but he mentions what he is mimicking so this could be Kitsch?
