a place through which the world passes,
for the sustenance of that place and our situated selves,
and for our very sense of being in-place.

a place from which we go to a world which is immediate and present and to hand.

Claire Fahys : Cities

Claire Fahys explores the future of social relationships in an increasingly virtual and global world. Freed up from any material constraint, virtual communities allow infinite interconnections for an unlimited population. But like vertical villages imagined by Le Corbusier in the 30s, these giant cities that aim at developing human relationships do have a dehumanised aspect. In the transition from the old real world to the new virtual world, human beings make the scaring experience of their smallness relative to the mass. [Extract : The French Art Studio]
