Blurb/Shorttext:
Fascination of Hybridized Spaces This work draws on the qualitative aspect of Landscape Urbanism. It precisely questions the image and space: the image which is not a representation of reality of the city, and the space which is not defined quantitatively. Instead, the image becomes a simulacra and the space/city body become hybridized. The work tries to focus on the fact that the experience of postmodern urbanism, whether it is the experience of image or space, is an experience of intensities. These intensities are intensities of fascination: the dissociation and dismantling of space/time in simulated image intensify seductivity; the perpetuating and multiplying features intensify desirability; and fusion, resulting into unexpected presences and unexpected combination of city's entities whereby city's materialism fuses with city's mythology, and whereby city's excess fuses with city's emptiness, this intensifies pleasurability and panic. The work addresses, in general, those who are in the urban design field, and precisely, those who are interested in the postmodern (intertextuality) approach in inspecting city spaces.
