There is something small andchildlike about the city, a fragility made more intense by the blank walls ofthe gallery that surround it. The observer is drawn in by the detail, a senseof looking through a microscope, yet the closer it is viewed the moreoverwhelming it becomes and the city becomes unfathomable and complex.
The city has an inner space, specific to each one of us. In the words ofIain Sinclair, The Guardian 14.07.05, ‘we see through our pores’, we experiencethe city as if it is part of our own bodies.
