Strangers in close proximity

Strangers in close proximity / 2018 / oil pastel on tied collection of urban fragments

Inspired by Bauman’s text : ‘City and social change are almost synonymous. Change is the quality of city life and the mode of urban existence. Change and city may, and indeed should, be defined by reference to each other. Why is it so, though? Why must this be so? It is common to define cities as places where strangers meet, remain in each other’s proximity, and interact for a long time without stopping being strangers to each other...’. -Zygmunt Bauman, 2003, ‘City of Fears City of Hopes’
