Unfolding space

The students are back and the university has a bit of life again after the summer.  It's kind of odd when only the staff and postgraduates are around.  I gave a two hour session yesterday detailing a genealogy of thinking about space.  I decided to try and illustrate ontogenetic conceptions of space (as something that becomes) as opposed to ontological conceptions (something that is) using a couple of videos of guerilla art; the idea that space is transduced - its a happening or an event or doing - as opposed to an absolute container in which life takes place.  I thought I'd share them as I think both are them are interesting and entertaining.  Both are set in train stations and disruption the usual socio-spatial production of the space.  Enjoy.
