Between Moment and Soil

The relation between human with the immediate environment (place) takes a direction in which, human dissolves in the place and becomes an integral constituent. The two continue to amalgamate the borders to the point where even the place molds the human by new patterns.

A person is uniquely associated to his geographical navigation. Whether conscious or not, this seamanship affects human behavior; his interaction with the geographical surroundings de facto goes through a process in which his subconscious is formed by his lived geography. Additionally, human is not merely influenced by a place, he himself becomes an active agent and dynamically interplays with it. With all these assumptions considered, human’s subconscious buried chaos and cavities are precisely rooted in falls and fractures of the earthly context. As a matter of fact, human percepts the location, reprocesses it with his previous mental image to the extent he unites with the geography and as the observer (the human) is seesawing with the observed (the place), a third perspective i.e. photograph is assembled.
