This is a typographic celebration of French Anthropologist Marc Augé’s book, Non-Places: Introduction To An Anthropology of Supermodernity.
"Non-places are generic spaces that lack identity, history and interaction." This piece argues this case. The words seen on motorways, car parks and train stations have similar visual formats, but the words themselves are elements of individuality. Phrases such as ‘Mind The Gap’ or ‘No hard shoulder for 200 yards’ highlight the identities of each non-place. The series focuses on how generic non-places appear on the outside, but the more time you spend in these spaces, the more you begin to understand its soul, history and identity.
