Lobalization: the death of social identity: a critical review of the urban strategies within the new paris supermetro
the first assignment for this seminar was to propose a hypothetical installation for the pairs metro. I submitted a short film titled social displacement within the network of flows”. I have attached a brief description of the film for you to use.
the main point of this essay is to argue that we have been removed/displaced from the real.Social interaction (social space)within the network society has forced the individual identity to be highly privatised . Places and social interactions become repetitive. People become removed from Placeas fast speed infrastructure allows us to be in constant motion. Social spaces within the global city are in transformation how we can form new social spaces within this network society?.
