dc.description.abstract This essay initially examines how the body experiences place, and whether through an analysis of this, a new way of adding value to spaces of supermodernity can occur. Spaces of supermodernity include airports, motorways, shopping centres, the virtual world of the internet etc. These are homogenous or ‘parallel’ spaces that have no attachment to the landscape they sit in, yet where people are spending increasing amounts of time; places where you are everywhere and nowhere and which exist only as a result of the spatialities and needs of contemporary society. By analysing place through a temporal lens and exploring the modes of the visual and perception, new methods are suggested as a potential way of thinking about these places differently. There is value in these places and it is through these means that they can perhaps be thought of differently and given an enhanced meaning. en_US
