Written especially for the limited edition catalogue to accompany the group exhibition Earth Not a Globe, The interior, the trace is a short, discontinuous (contemporary) history of public space. Partly biographical and tinted by my rapidly distorting powers of recollection, this series of anecdotes is a remnant of orphan experiences that I've often wanted to write about. The piece aims to illustrate a variety of instances rather than focus on the specificity of places, drawing on the referents, methods and structure of Walter Benjamin's Arcades Project
