Quoting the quotes

A few buildings in Tokyo

A few buildings in Tokyo

“Not to find one’s way in a city may well be uninteresting and banal. It requires ignorance- nothing more. But to lose oneself in a city- as one loses oneself in a forest- that calls for quite a different schooling”

In Benjamin’s terms, to be lost is to be fully present, and to be fully present is to be capable of being in uncertainty and mystery…And one does not get lost but loses oneself, with the implication that it is a conscious choice, a chosen surrender, a psychic state achievable through geography.”

-Rebecca Solnit talking of Walter Benjamin and losing oneself in A Field Guide to Getting Lost

Soon, we at the bureau will be choosing to surrender to Hindley Street in Adelaide’s West End…we set up shop on October 21st so stay tuned for more details..

yours truly,

the ABW.
