"What can we know about the world? From our birth to our death, how much space can our gaze hope to sweep? How many square centimeters of planet earth will our soles have touched?"
- Species of Spaces, Georges Perec
Disposable Species of Spaces is an artistic walk that questions the links between intimacy and space and their borders in a specific place. An intimate story told by the performer makes the public (re) discover the space through a disposable camera during a walk along the Plaza at the Prague Exhibition Grounds. The project is inspired by the works of Georges Perec. Using a disposable camera, the public is invited to follow the story of the performer through several indications. The project is an intempt to rebuild the perception of the space of the viewers: up/down, left/ right, far/near, in front of/behind, but also the horizon, the emptyness, the unexpected; those notions are reinterrogated and reconnected in everyone’s imagination. Therefore, the performance is designed around the very concept of ambulation. It is meant to take a full part in the development of poetics of the landscape, thus making the act of walking a sensitive exploration of the territory. The use of the disposable camera, gives the user an awareness of what he sees, what he really wants to "capture", and allowes him to keep a deep and precious record. Disposable Species of Spaces is a poetic gesture to make visible our (in)attention on a specific space and on its multiplicity of points of view.
