Hi this post is for redirecting you to the this amazing blog >>> BOREALLY
It is talking and over all showing a very great photographique work. The general purpose is the exploration of “non site”. What does mean “non site”, I use this term by direct reference to the Artwork ROBERT SMITHSON, as he describring the nature of the sites, he used to interact with. It’s this kind of place that are abondonned, desaffected, trace of an “old” human activity and suddenly let in a certain state. It can be : a factory, a mine, a bunker, a structure left after that explotation time was over. Also can be a functional place that use to be not visible to the public. PLaces that have an structural utility but are generaly hidden or barely unaccessible. Well it could a natural place but in a deserted place, fare away from civilisation hi moutain, desert, caves, submarine world… Mmm a great type of this special kind of place could be, the summit area of the TIBESTI or HOGGAR mountain chain in the SAHARA desert.
Well, If I am risking me to an analogy >> in a way those type of places are a projection or a representation of the unconsciouness of the human brain. I risking me again to tell that a non site is an archetypal space in a Jungian way of thinking.
What is the Tipology or phenomenology of the “non site” ? It’s a huge theme so I will writing shortly about my favorite one, the Industrial Abandonned site. It’s a place that use to be something of interest for some human organisation or activities and for x ans y resaons was left without care. Places that are slowly returning to a wild state, an “original” state. For the biggest one and most spectacular; It give you a strange feeling, something sound like : “post nuclear conflict” Something you can feel in movies like : Planet of the apes, or 12 monkies. Well it’s an signifiant exploration in the human substract that industrial societies leaves behind them…
>> an Endless Search…This blog is a perfect example of a NON SITE TROPISM…WHy does he do it ? Adventure, risk, adrenaline, aesthetic and … ?
