According to french antropologist ‘If a place can be defined as relational, historical and concerned with identity, then a space which cannot be defined as relational, or historical, or concerned with identity will be a non-place’ (Marc Augé, Non-places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity). The perception of a space like a non-place, however, is strictly subjective: each of us in his or her own way can see the same place as a non-place, or not. My work, influenced by the concept of Marc Auge , is trying explores human identity in this places.
