Non-place refers to the urban space which can neither be defined as relational, historical nor does it concern with its identity. It includes facilities or places for transportation of humans or freight.
A motorway is a kind of non-place. The function of the motorway has always been merely space for people to travel from one place to another, and the motorway itself does not carry any extra value in particular. Pedestrians would often pass by the motorway without giving this urban space a second thought. The work creates a representation of everyday but unrealistic space, by capturing and manipulating the motorway in the urban through photography.
The work held within the Academy of Visual Art Studies Collection.
