The Clown, thanks for your encouragement. I appreciate your support, and it is nice to know that someone is reading some of this, much less getting something out of it. I'm mostly posting stuff that I don't intend to publish (in terms of original writings), but I try to avoid posting total crap.

I cannot imagine what might have prompted this sudden interest in abandoned mental hospitals, but the photos are very nice.

WORTHLESS PLACES (Atoposes*):

The “non-places” still extant in cities and suburbs gain an ever more important symbolic and poetic meaning: that is, the unused or abandoned interspaces between different planned places. Exceptions remaining or reborn everywhere: hidden corners of parks, odd backstreets and nooks, interspaces between properties, buildings or roads, various pathways and squares left half-ready or abandoned in the quick transformations of urban life. Pedantic city planning creates order much through rejection: an increasing number of places do not fulfill their intended functions. They get demarcated as a vaguely forbidden zone, close upon us but economically dead and therefore often invisible.
