"I think we didn’t go blind, I think we are blind. Blind people who can see, blind people who can see without seeing "
© 1996 by Josè Saramago
The perception of things is connected with senses. Therefore the perception of the city is inextricably bound with the use of senses. What if senses existed any more? Which could possibly be the future of an unfelt city? Would we be able to feel anymore? Senses are the link with the space, the tool used to move around it, to grab its nuances, to take possession of it. Space is perceived in a subjective way. The idea we have of space emerges from our own perception of senses. Without senses, the city becomes flat, looses its tones, becomes white. Everyville rises from the ashes of a senseless city.
