layers of space \ layers of time
Cities and memory are very similar in one respect: they both evolve in a “collage” fashion. One may be tempted to believe that cities are spatial collages, while memory is a temporal collage. Memory grows and develops, and so do cities. They can be seen as a mirror for the collective memory. When you take a closer look at the city, are its textures solely spatial characteristics? Or are they the reflection of time? Is the depth of the city a layering of space or a layering of time?
In this photoessay two “random” cities come together. My memory is the only thing that ties them and gives them another dimension to coexist in. I looked at how Bucharest and Eindhoven are collages of space as much as they are collages of time.
