Exploring Space: Heterotopias, The Cinema and a Time Geography Experiment Outubro 6, 2015Posted by paulo jorge vieira in Uncategorized.
em torno das heterotopias
Despite the title of this post, I’m not about to delve in to anything astronomy-themed! Although, if you want to nerd-out on some cool space stuff, i’ve written about it here. What I am going to do is briefly examine a few different ideas about space, the on-earth kind. I’ll be asking: What is a heteroptopia? Are these spaces shaped by design and technology? Do spaces have politics? Lastly, I’ll report back on a little time geography experiment I conducted that Hagerstrand would be proud of.
What is a Heterotopia?
This curly one was coined by none other than Foucault in the 1960’s. Wrap your head around this:
“Heterotopia, literally meaning ‘other places’, is a rich concept in urban design that describes a world off-center with respect to normal or everyday spaces, one that possesses multiple, fragmented, or even incompatible meanings.” Source: Dehaene and De Couter (2008)
