The space between

1 June 2012

A good range of speakers (Dr Theresa Anderson, Craig Davis, Dick Rijken) were speaking at  UTS ‘Shapeshifters’ on 24 May and #UTSspeaks was trending – what was everybody else doing?

The video of the full session is now available.

I was astonished to hear from Dr Anderson (who spent her childhood afternoons hopping over her border in central Europe) that the space where The Iron Curtain used to be is now an important environmental green space. (Later investigation included finding a photographer’s project comparing the locations he photographed in the eighties with the current greened and restored spaces along Die Grenze.)

This greening reminded me of the High Line park which recently so impressed my well-travelled brother-in-law.
