No Imagination

by Zbigniew

DSCN0134“Vancouver is a strange place that doesn’t want to imagine itself, doesn’t want to codify its signifiers, to write its history, its meaning, its sociology. The robber barons and developers, resource exploiters who thought that because they were white with might they couldn’t so much inscribe themselves on the land as ensure no one else could -that they could insist on Vancouver being a non-place.”
