A sense of place traditionally has often been tied to existing and a particular physical place. However, as the increasing interconnecting and globalization has had a very significant impact on how we think about place and how we feel about a physical place.
The advance of the globalization of economic and cultural exchange have allowed people to move beyond the idea of a sense of place in a physical sense. Therefore, as a central key to have a sense of place for modern human being, the most, important step can be finding and relating to the parts of feeling and experiences which they can carry around, no matter where they are. In other words, internalizing the feelings of place inside themselves can be a primary requirement for people to expand the spectrum of a sense of place.
In this sense, it can be seen that a sense of place for us does not remain as one geographical place, but as stories built up with our experiences in every moment. Everyone has a history and the history can become a place of our root and a sense of place for us. A sense of place is conjured up in our rich memories, images and feelings and remains as a story with us.
The collection of artists I have put together representing a diverse cultural context and their own particular a sense of place explore the themes through their personal interpretation of the urban environment both public and private. Seeking to find new ways of the finding one’s own place or balance beyond the physical place.
