ByNowWeAreThere: a series of locations connected by the logic of curiosity
Geographer Yi Fu Tuan explains that space becomes place when it is invested with meaning. By that logic, we make place–it is a product of our understanding and perception. But if not intrinsic, then place can be, literally, everywhere–an idiosyncratic assignment of meaning. Driving from the United States into Mexico at the Andrade Port of Entry on the morning of November 9, 2016, eleven people were bound for the Pacific coast of Mexico in a University of Arizona van. If you asked them what makes a place as they crossed the border into Los Algodones the answer might have been shared experience.
