Further Details
Abstract We see our surroundings as images made up not only of language, but also of visuality, sensuality, & affectivity. The resulting images transcend a world defined by the limits of verbs, objects, & devices of representation that make of the subject a mere narrator of experiences. The author proposes to develop an approximation of cities through three different scenes that represent the spaces of power & government but also of daily life: (1) from the tower: the sensual view; (2) in the streets: the view from the perspective of one walking; & (3) the city as a form: the impure view. In each, the subject is presented as an actor of the city at a particular level.
