Imagine a place in which instead of highways, trucks, cars, buses, taxis and motorcycles there are pedestrians and boats. Imagine a place in which you only walk, walk and walk, and ride boats  Imagine towns and cities connected through labyrinth-like streets and water canals linking all parts of land. Imagine a place where water is equally important to land, in fact, water is the core of the territory.

A museum is an institution dedicated to creating connections … a meeting point between two arrows of time, the past and the future, and two arrows of complexity, greater and lesser, that originate at the point we call us, and now.

In other words, museums are the fourth dimension.

Joe Hanson offers a beautiful definition of what a museum is. Pair with Stephen Jay Gould, the greatest science writer of all time, on why the sparking of connections is the key to creativity.

Meanwhile, to the brilliant Neil deGrasse Tyson, a museum is a soundbite:

A soundbite is useful because it triggers interest in someone, who then goes and puts in the effort to learn more.  And that’s all a museum can really be.

Seems that I have a final thesis abstract

Here is There: Places in Common and Participatory Links 

Local and global, public and private may collide in unexpected ways.

Within days of arriving in Providence, I was in the Social Security Office for a SSN card. To my surprise the officer called me rola—that’s how other Colombians refer to Bogotanos. Within minutes I also learned about all the Colombian restaurants in town. I found myself simultaneously in a new town, a new country, yet with numerous references to my home place. Places are not fixed and static, and placemaking is a multiple and transnational process.
