The project Non-Place (2013) traces the patterns and rituals of display in the Non Place such as airports and hotels. “Non-Places” are defined by the French anthropologist Marc Auge, as places of transience that do not hold enough significance to be regarded as "places" and which are the real measures of our contemporary time.
The images in this project represent existing, real places of display within such public spheres, and which attempt to create the illusion of luxury, uniqueness and glamour.
Although Non-Places are described as generic, unmemorable sites that lack historical identity in our culture, they still have their own common visual presence. In the series, the camera detaches these constructed artificial sciences from any concrete place and offers them as mere appearances. Through the photographic surface the viewer comes to test the sincerity of the appearance of the display in the Non-places and raises questions such as: how far can a place become abstracted before it loses its notion as a place? What are the key details that should be included to make a difference between a “place” and a generic Non-Place?
